After an employee at Unique Boutique in Melbourne couldn't find her cellphone, surveillance video showed the brazen suspect who cops say may have stolen it.

Police described the alleged culprit as a thin, black woman with long black hair, possibly wearing a wig.  She was wearing a long, striped dress in the video and may also have a tattoo on her chest.  The missing phone is a white iPhone 5 with a tortoise shell case.
