Police said they have stolen clothes, cosmetics products and food from a number of stores near Gukje Market in Jung-gu, Busan while they were unattended, and have pickpocketed when it was crowded in the marketplace since December 2017.
The stolen goods are worth an estimated 5.2 million won ($4,700), according to police.
Suspects were arrested after police tracked them down by analyzing CCTV footage.
