One Long Island woman was arrested and police are searching for a second after the two allegedly stole more than $5,000 worth of merchandise from a Micheal Kors store.

The incident took place around 5:40 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 5, at the store located in the Tanger Outlets in Riverhead.

The two removed 14 bags of merchandise valued at $5,892 from the store without paying, according to Riverhead Police.

The women were seen getting into a black-colored Audi and fleeing the area prior to officers' arrival, according to police.

 A description of the suspects and the vehicle were broadcast and a short time later, the vehicle was located at the Greenview Inn on West Main Street, said the Riverhead Police.
