Hamilton police are investigating the theft of $10,000 in merchandise from a central Hamilton fetish and clothing store.

Police say that on July 25, someone entered the Dungeon Divas shop on James Street South and stole a "large quantity of merchandise."

On Facebook, the store posted that about $10,000 in merchandise was taken.

One of those items was a custom made, one of a kind corset, as well as many "custom leather items," the post reads.

In a news release, Hamilton police wrote that a 31-year-old man was arrested in connection to the thefts.

"A big thank-you to my employee, who was able to secure this man's full name, address, photos, social media accounts, [and] family members within hours of learning about this incident!" reads a post on the store's Facebook page from July 27.

"Who knew that wearing a tanktop to expose all of your poorly drawn tattoos during a robbery would be a bad idea? Gee!"

On Wednesday, police released a photo of two people they believed were involved in the robbery. Thursday, police tweeted that after investigating, "it has been determined that these individuals were not involved."
