Police release surveillance video of $1 million closet heist

WOODLANDS, TX – Theresa Roemer’s closet made international headlines at the end of July for its massive 3,000 square foot size and luxurious contents.

Hermes Birkin bags, Rolex watches, Louboutin shoes — the closet was chock full of eye-catching goods.

And it seems one thief was watching TV when the closet was featured, and the expensive goods caught his eye.

The pricey heist happened last Friday and now the surveillance video has been released.

The crook crashed the closet when Roemer went out for a few hours, forgetting to set the alarm.

He used a glass cutter to break in through a bathroom window — you can see him loading up on about $1 million of designer goods.

“You don’t want people to know where you keep your valuables, where you hide your valuables, or what valuables you do have in your residence,” Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Brady Fitzgerald said.

Montgomery County Crime Stoppers is offering a reward for any information on the crime.

Moral of the story? Always set your alarm code, and maybe don’t advertise the contents of your closet around the world. You never know who’s watching.
