A local small business owner is warning the community about a shoplifter who made off with a bag of goods on Orange Avenue.

The odd part is, she slipped out of the store undetected by security sensors. 

In the surveillance footage, it's easy to see the woman rolling up an expensive dress and shoving it into her purse.

The store owner thinks the woman was wearing a wig and - based on her brazen theft - thinks the woman was a professional. 

Police told the store owner that the woman may have lined her purse to trick the anti-theft system in the boutique.
