Two women accused of stealing from a metro small business were captured on camera.

The store owner is now giving a timeline for returning the items before they press charges.

The incident happened Friday at Classic Charm Boutique in Oklahoma City's midtown.

Brooke Donoley, the store's owner, wanted the people who took the clothes to know the person they were taking from.

"I noticed two girls had went into the fitting rooms with four items. It wasn't until after they left, I realized they only came out with two," Donoley said.

She believes the women hid the clothing in the bags before walking out. She took inventory to maker sure before calling the police.

"Those items aren't here anymore, so you put two and two together and realize, 'Hey, they took from me!'"

Only a couple of years into her small business journey, she wants her message to reach the suspected shoplifters.

"Stealing is not cool, you're stealing from small businesses, and essentially you're stealing from a small business owner's personal pocket," Donoley said.

It looks like a business on the outside, but Donoley said it's her livelihood.

"It's just personal more than anything," she said.

Donoley said she'll give the women through the weekend to come back and pay for the items before she presses charges.
