Adult Store Manager Estimates At Least $12,000 in Stolen Merchandise

The surveillance photos were shared through the adult store's Facebook page.

Teaz N Pleaz manager Chris Daniels has accounted for six pages of merchandise he believes was stolen in the early-morning Sunday robbery.

The manager estimates at least $12,000 in merchandise was stolen that day, the bulk of the value coming from a crate of intimate lubricants stored in the back of the shop.

"That's where they hit the jackpot," Daniels said.

Pieces of leather, corsets and other intimate merchandise were among the other pieces stolen. Due to the specificity the robbers exhibited when choosing the goods to take, coupled with the stolen crate, Daniels believes they may have had a plan.

Though he can't be sure, Daniels believes the robbers could try to sell the stolen goods through a variety of means, including online, swap meets and out of town.

Daniels also noted little to no cash was stolen.

Original story:

Do you recognize these faces?

Surveillance photos gathered by adult store Teaz N Pleaz may help shed light on an early Sunday morning burglary that resulted in the theft of more than $4,000 worth of merchandise.

Store manager Chris Daniels explains no developments have been made in the case, though he and the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department believe they have a number of leads.

The photos reveal the burglary was orchestrated by at least two white male suspects, believed to be in their 20s. The photos also show the suspects used what appears to be a trash can to haul away much of what was stolen.

The robbery occurred early Sunday morning around 2 a.m. when the robbers used a rock to smash through the business's front door window.

Sacramento Sheriff's spokesman Jason Ramos explained though developments have been made in the investigation, he cannot fully disclose any of that information at this time.

Those with information in the case can call Sacramento Sheriff's property crimes bureau at 916-874-5051.

I haven't seen a headline this clickable in quite a while. And nope, I don't recognize their faces.

Manager Chris Daniels also believes he may have received a tip from an anonymous source that may shed light on the location where at least some of his stolen merchandise may be being stored.

Whew...I look nothing like that guy

Any updates? Whew. $12,000 dollars worth of intimate lubricants? Is there a lubricant black market I am unaware of? Is this going to be the next big wave of crime, much like the copper wire methhead thieves? On another note, I was totally unaware of this store and I think you should probably do an article on best named businesses in Fair Oaks and declare a king and queen.

The only person they should investigate is Mr. Daniels...he's a dishonest, sneaky little man...he's the only thief/con-man in that store!
