Police are searching for two women accused of stealing $600 worth of sex toys from an adult super store.
Three women were seen on CCTV footage entering the sex toy shop ‘Libido’ in Perth’s Northbridge at 12.10am on Sunday.
Two of the women, one wearing high-waisted lace pants and a crop top, allegedly removed packaging from four high-end vibrators and left the store with the sex toys hidden in their clothing.
Libido owner Garry Smith said the women managed to take off with four of his best-selling vibrators.
One of the vibrators, the Come Hither Rabbit, was valued at $280.
He alleged one woman had initially entered the busy store alone, and had unboxed a vibrator while staff had been busy with other customers.
She allegedly left the store with the product before returning with a friend to grab more items.
Smith said CCTV footage showed the pair grab three other vibrators, priced between $85 and $140 and take them into the dressing room.
They pair allegedly left the empty packaging in the changing room and left with the pricey products without the staff member noticing.
Police have released images of the women caught on CCTV footage that they believe can assist with the investigation.
Smith is offering a $50 voucher to anyone who can identify the women.
He said every six months he loses about $2,500 in goods to theft.
‘It’s just a constant issue for us,’ he said.
‘We have a lot of issues, because we are one of the few retailers on the street, we’re open during night time to capture that passing trade.’
Mainly female sex toys were taken, he said.
Australia’s sex toy industry has been booming and demand for products is high, according to a report from adult toy retailer Randy Fox.
