Authorities in Essex County are on the search for several thieves wanted for a large-scale theft at a mall in Millburn Wednesday evening.
A preliminary investigation indicated that shortly before 8:30 p.m., police responded to reports of a theft at the Nordstrom store inside Short Hills Mall.
Upon arrival, police learned that four black male suspects stole about $4000 in merchandise from the store before running from the scene.
Police say the assailants entered a grey Ford Focus with NY license plates last seen on I-78.
Police managed to catch up with the vehicle where officers followed and attempted to pull the car over but ultimately terminated the chase.
The incident remains under investigation and the suspects are at large.
