TWO women who came into the northern beaches and allegedly stole thousands of dollars worth of clothes have been charged and will face court.

The women, a 44-year-old from Canterbury and a 49-year-old from Belmore, are alleged to be behind an organised, large-scale theft of clothes from multiple stores in Brookvale.

"Items valued at more than $11,000 were taken during the three months to the end of May by women using anti-detection devices," a NSW Police spokesperson said.

"Investigations have led our Proactive Crime Team officers to homes at Belmore and Canterbury in Sydney's south.

"Property worth around $20,000 and more than $40,000 in cash have been seized and two women arrested."

The 44-year-old will face Manly Local Court on charges of:

  • 4 x shoplifting value $2000 and $5000
  • Recklessly deal with proceeds of crime $5000

The 49-year-old will face Bankstown Local Court on charges:

  • 4 x shoplifting value $2000 and $5000
  • 3 x armed with intent to commit indictable offence
  • Knowingly deal with proceeds of crime.

Both women have been granted conditional bail pending appearances at court.
