OKLAHOMA CITY -

Oklahoma City police are trying to track down two women - who took more than $17,000 worth of watches from a local department store and it was all caught on camera.

Police say they were all Michael Kors watches that were in a display case at the Dillard's at Penn Square Mall.

Surveillance video shows the women as they case the jewelry counter near the escalator looking for the clerk, pretending they are just there shopping. Fast forward a little bit and you see the woman dressed in black run behind the counter, while her accomplice acts as a lookout - she even covers the glass counter with the clothing in her hands, to make it appear her friend is an employee helping her.

"The report mentions that there possibly was a clerk there that was distracted by maybe even a third suspect who we don't have any information on," said Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow with the Oklahoma Police Department. "Possibly somebody else involved that was distracting the clerk so that she could have time by herself at that counter."

But these two are helping themselves to are a total of 74 watches that average about $230 a pop. While employees were not able to catch them in the act, the store cameras did manage to catch a close up shot of the accomplice as she continued to shop inside the Dillard's department store. And Oklahoma City police hope someone out there recognizes her.

"So we're confident that somebody is going to know who this girl is, turn her in and that would lead us to her friend," said Wardlow.

If you do recognize that woman you are urged to call Oklahoma City Crime stoppers at 235-7300.
