OREM, Utah (ABC4) – Orem Police say they recovered over $50,000 worth of stolen goods from suspect vehicles after observing a group of shoplifters on Saturday.

Two detectives were reportedly doing extra patrol at University Place when they came upon a group of female shoplifters at Sunglass Hut.

The shoppers were allegedly stealing sunglasses when detectives caught on to what was happening.

According to a Facebook post from the Orem Police Dept., the detectives recovered over $50,000 worth of clothing from the suspects’ vehicles, including items from Victoria Secret, Lululemon, American Eagle, and more.

The property was returned, authorities say, and the women were charged.
