3 burglars steal $47K in clothes, cash from Laurelwood fashion store

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Memphis Police Department is looking for three people who broke into the Joseph store in East Memphis on Friday morning.

The store at Laurelwood Shopping Center was hit around 4 a.m. Police said the front glass doors were broken out.

The three thieves got away with $47,000 worth of merchandise, including the cash drawer and other items like belts and jewelry.

The three suspects got into a white vehicle with no tags. All three people had hoodies tied up over their faces.

Shoppers said they are tired of all the crime.

"They're lazy and they see it's easy to steal from somebody rather than work for themselves," Mark Sams, who works in Laurelwood Shopping Center, said. "Make some honest money. It's crazy."
