It pays to scout out a place if you're looking to steal from it, we suppose.
While you may go willy-nilly into some fancy West U boutique and come out with a bunch of overpriced crap, a little research can result in a better haul.
We're supposing the woman pictured here, along with an accomplice, took the latter route.
Without making much fuss, cops say, the pair shoplifted figurines from a store that were worth north of $10,000.
That's some fancy figurines.
The crime occurred July 28 in the 4000 block of Bellaire Boulevard.
