HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

It may have happened in a fragrance store, but it was still a smelly crime.

Not only did two crooks make off with hundreds of dollars worth of perfume, they also made it much worse on their way out.

You can see the two crooks on surveillance video as they entered the Ulta Fragrances store at the Bridge Street Town Center June 27.

Police say they then stuffed almost $700 worth of perfume in a purse and underneath their clothing.

But they were spotted by the employees, who confronted them as they were leaving the store.

According to police, one the crooks told the employees, "If you come any closer, I will shoot you."

That statement turned this from a theft into a robbery.

One of the robbers is heavy set, wearing a floral print dress.

The other is very tall, wearing shorts and an 'MK' T-shirt.

We're told they got into a black Infiniti and took off.

Do you know one or both of these women?

There's a reward of up to $1,000 for information that leads to their arrest.
