Video shows them entering the Walgreens at 199 Weston Road at 6:01 p.m. A minute later, they’re in the makeup aisle, taking products off the shelves at a speed that would suggest a Buy One, Get Five Free sale. Except, they’re putting the makeup in purses and handbags. They leave by 6:06 p.m.
BSO detectives think they’ve hit other Walgreens in South Florida.
