Police in Livingston are on the search for several suspects who stole thousands of dollars in merchandise from Livingston during an overnight burglary.

According to a statement released by Livingston Police Lt. Chris Reinhardt, sometime during the overnight hours, three unidentified suspects broke into Macy's by forcing their way through a loading dock door.

Lt. Reinhardt said, once, inside the establishment, the suspects took suitcases from the sales floor then loaded them with men's clothing and shoes valued at approximately $3,000.

A mall security guard found the unsecured door while responding to a report of an alarm and secured the door, apparently locking the suspects inside Lt. Reinhardt said.

About an hour later, a second alarm was tripped when the suspects exited the building. It is not clear if the guard checked the store for suspects during the first alarm.

Evidence of the burglary was found when store security arrived Friday morning.

Lt. Reinhardt said the mall has been closed for several weeks because of the coronavirus pandemic.
