A woman made off with items from a Bluffton children's boutique Monday by stuffing the merchandise into her pants and shirt, according to a Beaufort County Sheriff's Office report.

Employees of Children's Place at Tanger Outlet Center 1 told deputies a woman entered the store shortly after 5:30 p.m. and began putting items in her clothing. When an employee called the Sheriff's Office, the suspect and three other women left the store, got into a white Chevrolet sedan with Georgia license plates and drove away, the report said.

The woman took six shirts and four shorts, worth a total of $130, the report said. A description of the suspect was not available.
