Police: Couple hid in Target twice until everyone left before smashing, stealing

NORTHEAST PHILADELPHIA — What can happen inside a big box store when it’s closed for the night? Not necessarily deliveries and stocking, but a manager’s nightmare.

Philadelphia police say that twice, the couple in this video entered this Target Store at 7400 Bustleton Avenue in Northeast Philadelphia.

On May 14 and then again on July 7, they’re accused of hiding inside and waiting

“until all the employees left for the night.

“The suspects then smashed several locked glass cabinets, taking PlayStation Beats headphones and Apple products,” police report.

The thieves must’ve also stolen suitcases because police say they escaped from the store with several of them, full of merchandise.

Police haven’t said which occasion the surveillance video was shot.

They do ask that if you see the suspects, do not approach them. Instead, call 911 or the police tipline at 215-686-TIPS (8477) immediately. You can also text a tip to PPD TIP or 773847, or click here to submit a tip electronically. They say all tips will remain anonymous.
