A 24-year-old Southwest Philadelphia woman surrendered to police Monday night after she was identified as one of four people suspected of entering a Germantown apartment building last month and stealinge three pairs of Christian Louboutin shoes, one Louis Vuitton handbag, and one Gucci handbag, valued at a total of $7,000.
Annette Rodriguez of the 5800 block of Florence Avenue turned herself in to Northwest Detectives after being identified using surveillance video, police said Thursday.
The theft occurred about 10:30 p.m. Jan. 26 at the Wayne Court Apartments on the 5400 block of Wayne Avenue. Police said Rodriguez and three other people — a woman and two men —were able to enter the building, then forced open the door to one of the apartments, where they stole the goods.
Lt. Dan Brooks of Northwest Detectives said Thursday the victim was not in her apartment at the time. He said she is the former girlfriend of the man Rodriguez is dating. He said he did not know if Rodriguez's boyfriend was part of the heist.
The three other suspects have not been arrested, but police have leads on one through social media and surveillance videos, Brooks said.
Brooks said the apartment building's surveillance video system was very helpful, as was video picked up by a SEPTA bus on its route. The bus video picked up the license plate of a red Honda in which Rodriguez and her three alleged conspirators fled, he said.
