(Newser) – She wasn't a Target employee, but a woman who sure seemed like one allegedly made off with around $40,000 worth of iPhones from a Virginia store. NBC Washington reports Fairfax County cops are looking for the retail impostor, who they say donned attire resembling a worker's getup, waltzed into the stockroom of the Alexandria location with a box, and loaded the box with dozens of iPhones before taking off.

WTOP reports the woman, whose image was caught on tape, seemed to be familiar with how things worked at the store, including employee hours and where the iPhones were stored. Police say the theft occurred March 15, but posted about it on Facebook Monday with a call to "help us nab an iPhone thief." (Target recently had a Boston problem.)
