According to the Brookfield Police Department, the fire was discovered on a shelf containing stuffed animals in the rear of the store.

Police said security footage showed two women staged near the entry door, and when the store employees left the customer service desk to check the fire, the two women exited the store -- pushing a shopping cart full of merchandise.

"It's unfortunate people have to be like that," said Amanda Junior, shopper.

Inside the store nearly a week later, shoppers are greeted at the doors with signs apologizing for a limited selection.

"We actually went past the rope to look at stuff and they told us we could not be back there, everything is contaminated, they can't even sell the stuff," said Junior.

Customers say they are saddened to hear of the arson and possible theft.toys-r-us2

"I feel bad for the people who actually took a loss. It is kind of sad people go through desperate measures to do such things," said Stephens.

Authorities have released descriptions of the two women:

Suspect #1: Black woman with a slender build in her early 20s -- wearing a green knit hat with a gray tassel, with a Green Bay Packers "G" and a maroon jacket over a gray hoodie.

Suspect #2: Black woman with a heavy build, wearing a waist-length jacket with fur-trimmed hood, knit hat and boots with fur trim.

    The humanitarian in me really wants to read headlines like this and be surprised by the article. The cynic in me, however, is constantly proven right.

    Blacks want to quit being interrogated all the time for being suspicious, yet continue to do things like this.. how do you seriously think you’re going to get away with it? At least attempt to be smart. Your face is on the camera, you will get caught. And it’s unfortunate that you make life harder for your fellow black peers who actually want to do the right thing and quit the stereotypes.

    They should star in the old Tarzan movies where they tie their legs between a couple feisty saplings and rip them in half. Of course wouldn’t recommend it as a sentence but some serious punishment should be dolt to deter future miscreants.

    I’m sure they will be located somewhere on the Northside. Probably don’t think they did anything wrong since they was stealing from whitey and our great great great great great grandmama was a slave.

    The cost of not speaking up will be much higher than the risks you are taking now. Be humble and honest for once in your lives and turn yourselves in. Do so now instead of using your vengeful reparation thoughts as justification. You will be punished but you can be forgiven. Simply do it now and apologize to all the blacks you offended by your actions. We’re waiting.

  • FAUX6 IS LIBERAL GARBAGE

    Oh look FAUX6 the liberal-pandering machine removed posts again, typical of the nazi-liberal agenda they have going. Don’t want to face facts do you FAUX6 libturds? These blacks will continue to move further and further West in attempts to steal from businesses that haven’t been “Hit” yet since they already stole (or in some cases burned down) all the stores they could East of the Pewaukee area, and most of the stores East of there watch these ghetto trash types like a hawk as soon as they step foot in the door. Stop stealing from hard working people and GET A JOB! Lazy trash.
