HOOVER, Ala. (WIAT) — Hoover police are asking for your help to arrest an overly affectionate pair accused of stealing RX eyeglasses and sunglasses from LensCrafters all over the country.
The duo, a man and woman, reportedly hit several local stores in the area, including the Lenscrafters on Highway 280. Hoover police say the couple was working together to conceal a combination of RX and sunglass frames. They were described as being “over the top” with displaying affection for each other, which police say means they wanted to appear like they were in a relationship possibly to avoid suspicious. They were hugging, kissing, and complimenting each other as they tried on frames.
The total amount of frames stolen adds up to over $7,500. Police received the surveillance shots of the suspects from cases in California and Arizona.
