An Illinois woman who sells adult toys for a living may have less of her sexy stockpile than she did a week ago.
Tiara Likes returned to her Galesburg, Illinois apartment Monday to discover a pink Adidas bag containing erotic playthings and antibiotics missing, the Galesburg Register-Mail reported.
Likes, who was returning from a convention in Las Vegas, told police a thief made off with more than $1,000 of her inventory but took no other valuables. The premises reportedly had no sign of forced entry, and neighbors told police they had not witnessed anything unusual in the area.
"No TV's were gone, no laptops were gone," Capt. Rodney Riggs of the Galesburg Police Department told the Daily News. "Right now the case is pretty much closed."
"We'll reopen it if we have some further information," Riggs added.
Likes, 23, did not immediately return a message asking for comment. Her Facebook page describes her as an independent romance adviser with Intimate Expressions, an Ohio-based company that sells adult novelties at parties in people's homes. The Tupperware-style retailer markets an assortment of lubricants, gels and other toys, according its website.
Though the department’s investigation has yet to produce a suspect, Likes told police she publicizes her enterprise via word of mouth. "A lot of people out there know this is what she does for a living," Riggs said. "That's how she promotes her business."
