A group of women has been walking into a high-end athletic clothing store chain across California and stuffing merchandise into bags in broad daylight and leaving, according to Fresno Police.
Three women, believed to be from the Bay Area, were caught on camera at a Lululemon store in Fresno on Sunday afternoon stealing $17,000 worth of workout clothing, police said.
The Fresno Police Department said more than a dozen other Lululemon locations across the Bay Area were raided in July, a few of them more than once.

Police made arrests for the theft on July 12 at Lululemon’s Broadway Plaza location in Walnut Creek but other stores continued to be targeted.
Approximately $135,000 worth of merchandise has been stolen across the stores, police said.
Lululemon sells yoga clothes and other athletic apparel. It’s well-known for its leggings, which are priced at more that $90 each.
