Two women busted stealing designer handbags from high-end boutique

Two women have been charged after they allegedly stole three designer handbags from a high-end boutique in Adelaide.

Just after 3.00pm on Thursday, officers were called to the shop on King William Road in Hyde Park following reports of an aggravated robbery.

It’s understood two women entered the boutique and pinched three handbags before running off.


One of the shop assistants tried to chase the pair and challenge them as they got into a car, however the women allegedly threatened the employee.

Police later searched a home at Plymton Park where they found the handbags and other stolen items.

A 28 and 25-year-old woman were arrested and charged. The older woman was charged with aggravated robbery, theft and unlawful possession, while the younger woman was charged with aggravated robbery.

They’re both due to appear in the Adelaide Magistrates Court later today.
