From staff and submitted reports

San Marcos police are investigating the burglary of the Perfume Studio, a business located at 4015 S. IH-35 at Tanger Outlet Mall.

The burglary occurred in the late hours of Sunday night into Monday morning and was discovered by an employee at 9 a.m. Monday. The intruder or intruders cut through the roof and removed large quantities of “various brands of perfume ranging in price,” Melissa Millecam, the city’s spokesperson said in a statement released after Newstreamz began making inquiries about the break-in.

“We have not determined the exact amount of property stolen and the value, but it appears to be a large loss for the store,” said Cmdr. Bill Glasgow, head of Criminal Investigations.

Anyone with information concerning this crime is asked to contact the Criminal Investigations Division at San Marcos Police Department, 512-753-2300, or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-324-8477 or locally at 353-8477.
