ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- Yoga studios in Albuquerque have become targets for thieves.

Surveillance video from Sweat Yoga Studio, on Osuna near Jefferson, shows a woman posing as a yoga student, and swiping wallets last Tuesday.


“She gave us a fake name a fake, fake email and fake phone number,” said Marisa Johnson, owner of Sweat Yoga Studio.

Johnson said the woman stole a total of five wallets.

“I think she needs to be stopped. I think she probably needs help,” Johnson said. “This seems to be a pattern. I just want it stopped, and if she needs help, I want her to get the help she needs.”

Several yoga studios in Albuquerque have reported similar thefts-- with similar descriptions of a suspect.

Since the incident, the SWEAT Yoga studio stepped up its security protocol, and plans on installing new large lockers for their clients.
