Designer sunglasses worth $4,500 shoplifted in West Windsor, NJ
WEST WINDSOR — Eleven pairs of sunglasses totaling thousands of dollars were lifted from a Mercer County mall store last month, and police are still seeking the whereabouts of two suspects.
On the afternoon of Monday, Feb. 28, as detailed by the West Windsor Police Department in a March 9 Nixle blotter, a male and female suspect were said to have entered the Sunglass Hut location inside MarketFair on Route 1, taken the designer sunglasses, and fled before officers arrived.
The shoplifted frames had a combined value of approximately $4,500, police said.
West Windsor Police Lt. Jeff Lai told New Jersey 101.5 on Tuesday that seven pairs of the sunglasses were made by Versace, and the other four by Gucci.

The female suspect, who remains unidentified, is described by police as Black, "full-figured," with brown and blonde hair, and tattoos on both sides of her face that extend from her eyebrows down toward her chin.
