LOS ANGELES – Los Angeles police are looking to throw shade at the thieves behind a million-dollar makeup heist.
The LAPD said Thursday that it’s investigating after $4.5 million worth of eye shadow was stolen from a cosmetics warehouse in the city.
They say the theft occurred between Jan. 28 and Jan. 30 at a warehouse in Los Angeles that houses Anastasia Beverly Hills products.
Police believe the suspects cut a hole in the roof of the warehouse and made off with 100,000 packages of the beauty company’s “Modern Renaissance” eye shadow.
Police estimated the cosmetics were worth about $4.5 million.
A message left Thursday evening at Anastasia’s corporate office wasn’t immediately returned.
Police asked anyone with information on the heist to call LAPD detectives Marc Zavala, at 818-832-7510, or Jeannette Santos, at 818-832-7511; or 1-877-LAPD-24-7. Or go to lapdonline.org and click “anonymous web tips.”
