MALDEN, Mass. (WHDH) - Surveillance video shows a man walking in to a Malden store to look at a prom dress, it also shows him running away after taking the dress.

Precious Memories Bridal in Malden was closed for the day, but the man managed to talk his way inside saying he wanted to buy a dress.

Video shows the owner let him in and eventually go back to work. After that the suspect can be seen using his cell phone, touching the dress and then grabbing it.

"We are still investigating the incident but at this point in time we are looking at a charge of larceny over $250, which is a felony,” Malden Police Lt. Marc Gatcomb said.

You can see the suspect running into the parking lot, into what police say was a blue mercury sable. Then he speeds off into traffic, but not before the witnesses were able to get his plate number.

“We’ll be in touch,” Gatcomb said.

Police believe the man is from Marshfield and they are working with officers from there to track down the dress and the suspect.
