The owner of MAX Clothing Stores says a couple stole more than $20,000 worth of clothing from two different shops in just over an hour.

The man and woman hit the store in Boulder on Saturday and then hit the store in Cherry Creek North about an hour later, according to owner Scott Seale.

Security cameras captured images of the man shoving items under his puffy coat in the Cherry Creek North location.

The owner said the couple stole all "high-ticket items."

"The suspects are sophisticated, shuffling merchandise between and within clothing racks, queuing each other, distracting salespeople, blocking views, etc.," Seale said.

"In our 30 years, we have never experienced such a devastating loss for our small business," said Seale.
