Police are searching for four men who stole $13,000 in perfume from a store in the Hudson Valley. Officials say they ran into an Ulta in Woodbury with empty shopping bags and swiped boxes of perfume off shelves and ran out within seconds. A woman saw the incident unfold from the parking lot and took a picture of a license plate, which police confirm is from one of two vehicles believed to be involved. Authorities say this store has been hit two other times since March and that the same group of people could be to blame, as well as for other larcenies at Ulta stores in New Jersey.
