The Belmont Shore Business Association just e-mailed this warning alert to all subscribers about shoplifters who they report are working Second Street and have stolen items and clerks' personal belongings. Surveillance cameras captured the attached very blurry images. Here's the notice:
November 19 around 4:30pm

The three kids in question were all African-American, and somewhere between 15-18 years of age. The shortest was a skinny girl with tight jeans, a tight bun hairstyle, and a Betsey Johnson bag. She shouted "No! No! No!" at one point when they were in the store and they all left.
The medium sized kid was a boy with a rounded face, a black jacket, and a backpack. He asked me if we could fix his phone to which we said no we don't do that and directed somewhere that might help. Meanwhile, the tallest of the three was in the back of the group stealing my phone, which was on the front desk where I work. He was tall and skinny, wearing what I remember as red.
....Please be aware and call 911 if you spot these suspects or have any other problems.
