Two Hamilton women have been accused of stealing cosmetics worth more than $14,000.

Hira Maria Hawea, 25, and Sharleen Barton, 27, are alleged to have targeted several Waikato Countdown supermarkets and a Hamilton pharmacy during a shoplifting spree over the past month. Their largest alleged haul was from Unichem Pharmacy in Rototuna in which $5243.52 of cosmetics were stolen on June 29.

On June 12, the pair are accused of stealing $5216.64 worth of the same products from Countdown Te Awamutu; $2586.24 from Countdown Te Rapa on July 18; and $91.90 from Countdown Nawton on June 24.

Barton faces two further separate charges of stealing cosmetics worth $294.55 and $927.40 from Countdown Chartwell, both on June 24.

Hawea and Barton also face another charge of shoplifting $466.84 worth of baby clothes and toys from the Baby Factory on June 24.

Hawea faces two additional charges of burglary of Countdown Chartwell on June 24 and two charges of receiving stolen property - a tot seat and a Disney blanket.

The pair were denied bail when they appeared before Judge Peter Spiller in the Hamilton District Court last week.

They were remanded in custody without plea until August 25.
