At the end of January, thieves stole $4.5 million in eye shadow palettes from a San Fernando Valley warehouse in an apparent heist. The unknown thieves sawed through the roof of a warehouse that stores the product for Anastasia Beverly Hills. The theft occurred between January 28th and 30th.
Over 100,000 “Modern Renaissance” palettes, which sell for $42 each, were taken during this heist. The palette is well-known and consumers are encouraged not to purchase palettes outside of a normal retailer.
Detectives in the Los Angeles Police Department’s Commercial Crimes Division are still investigating the theft and have yet to name any suspects.
