Shortly after, the same woman entered another clothing store on William Street.

When she left the store staff could not locate a black ‘Chanel’ brand dress with pearls around the neck, arms and pockets valued at more than $1500.

It’s believed that on both occasions the clothing appears to have been hidden under a jacket or coat.

Detectives have released CCTV images of a woman who they believe may be able to assist with their enquiries.

She has been described to police as being of Caucasian appearance and in her 40s. She has a medium build and is about 175cm tall with shoulder length hair.

Police have urged the woman or anyone with information about her to come forward.

A reward of up to $1000 has also been offered for information which leads to an arrest.
