The owner of a Clear Lake maternity and baby boutique is not just turning to the media but social media to catch a shoplifter.

Darcy Santala owns Haute Mommies and says Wednesday afternoon, a very rude customer entered her store and spent about ten minutes inside. Employees thought she was suspicious and after she left they checked the surveillance and she could be seen stuffing items in a large Louis Vuitton bag.

Santala posted the video on the boutique's Facebook page and has gotten a lot of responses. Houston police are also looking over the video.

The owner says she's already seen what she believes are high end items from her store on virtual garage sale web sites.
