Expensive perfumes made of steel – Vienna police are looking for luxury thief


Expensive sunglasses, fine fragrances – a previously unknown person knew exactly what he was looking for in Viennese drugstores and opticians. Now the police are looking for the thief.

When a young man with black hair, beard and stud earrings entered an optician’s shop on Mariahilfer Strasse around noon on March 27, none of the employees knew that the previously unknown person never intended to pay. The suspected thieves quickly stuffed 13 pairs of sunglasses from Balenciaga, Bottega Veneta and Gucci into a clearly prepared paper bag from a jeans manufacturer and left the store.

Two days later, the thief – again equipped with a paper bag – showed up at a drugstore in the Penzinger Auhof Center. There he stole perfumes from the luxury brands Mugler and Armani. He managed to escape unnoticed – the employees only noticed the brazen theft of their goods afterwards.

Tapped in Floridsdorf
On March 30, the luxury thief’s latest coup went terribly wrong. When he let countless perfumes disappear into his paper bag at the branch of the same drugstore chain on Floridsdorfer Prager Straße, he was caught. The unknown man had to flee on foot without any prey. According to police spokesman Markus Dittrich, further crimes cannot be ruled out.

Now state police are asking the public for information about the suspected serial thief using mugshots. You can hand them in – even anonymously – directly at the Ziegelofenweg police station or by telephone on 01/313 10 DW 643 22.
