ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – The thieves in Albuquerque with a preference for eye glasses have struck again.

The thieves were caught on tape inside Solarius Spa in northwest Albuquerque in early June.

One man checks out the goods, hangs out for a few minutes then takes two pairs of pricy Gucci sunglasses.

A different location in the heights was hit days later and now other eye glass businesses say they’ve been hit too.

The theft at one place was also caught on surveillance video.

Police say they are working the cases to see if they’re all connected. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
