LAPD seeks thieves thick with makeup after $4.5M heist

LOS ANGELES (AP) " Los Angeles police are looking to throw shade at the thieves behind a million-dollar makeup heist.

The LAPD said Thursday that it's investigating after $4.5 million worth of eye shadow was stolen from a cosmetics warehouse in the city.

They say the theft occurred between Jan. 28 and Jan. 30 at a warehouse in Los Angeles that houses Anastasia Beverly Hills products.

Police believe the suspects cut a hole in the roof of the warehouse and made off with 100,000 packages of the beauty company's "Modern Renaissance" eye shadow.

Police estimated the cosmetics were worth about $4.5 million.

A message left Thursday evening at Anastasia's corporate office wasn't immediately returned.
