Robbers hit both Lululemon stores in Palo Alto in 20 minute span

Daily Post Staff Writer

Three women carrying large bags managed to rob both Lululemon Athletica stores in Palo Alto about 20 minutes apart, stealing a total of $4,000 worth of yoga-inspired workout clothing, police said yesterday.

The first heist was reported around 2:10 p.m. Saturday at the Stanford Shopping Center store, where the women stole about $3,000 worth of pants, jackets and leggings. About 20 minutes later, a second robbery was reported at the downtown store at 432 University Ave, where the trio stole about $1,000 worth of clothing.

The two stores are about a mile apart.

All three women were described as African-American and in their 20s. Two stood about 5 foot 9 and weighed between 210 and 220 pounds. One wore a pink jumpsuit and carried a large black bag, and the second carried a large floral-print bag.

The third woman was about 5 foot 3 and weighed about 200 pounds. She was wearing pink tights and a white t-shirt.


  1. @Jack, actually, if they catch these folks they’ll be charged with burglary (PC 459) and if there was a confrontation with the store employees, PC 211 (robbery). You don’t need to have a weapon for a 211 charge, just that you accomplished the crime through force or fear.

  2. It’s always interesting to see how someone will take the side of the bad guys. Oh, don’t call them robbers! How about undocumented shoppers?.
