Two Myrtle Beach teens reported that $11,999 worth of jewelry, luggage, shoes and electronic equipment was stolen from their apartment early Sunday morning, according to a report at the Myrtle Beach Police Department.

One of the teens, age 19, told police that he went to sleep at about 3 a.m. while his roommates went to eat at a Denny’s restaurant.

He said that when he awoke at 8:30 a.m., he realized that a $2,000 laptop, $300 iPad, $499 Sony camera, $450 Gucci bag, $500 Louis Vuitton bag and $8,000 14 carat necklace and bracelet was missing. A roommate, age 18, said he was missing a $250 pair of white Dre Beats.

A wallet which reportedly was taken was located on the sixth floor of the building, the report said.

According to the report, a surveillance camera recorded two men leaving the apartment with a suitcase and bag at 3:48 a.m. The tape showed the men re-entered the building’s lobby at 3:50 a.m. and left at 3:56 a.m. carrying some sort small item. They returned at 4:00 a.m. and left at 4:03 a.m. carrying what appeared to be shoes and a back pack.
