Sydney, September 30: A man bearing a strong resemblance to Elvis Presley has been accused of stealing a fake vagina from a New Zealand sex shop, prompting a police investigation.

The Elvis lookalike allegedly stole the prosthesis from the Peaches and Cream sex store in suburban Auckland after a failed attempt to purchase it.

"He was very energetic and erratic, going around the shop, talking a lot... he brought a sex toy called 'Like a Virgin' up to the counter but his card declined," staff member Kat Maher told stuff.co.nz. ‘Kosher Sex’ Shop Opened By American Rabbi’s Daughter Chana Boteach in Tel Aviv.

Maher said the man -- whose Elvis-like characteristics included slicked-back black hair and large sunglasses, incongruously teamed with a high-visibility vest -- then ran out of the shop with the NZ$100 ($62) sex toy in hand.

New Zealand police confirmed they had received a report of a theft at the store on 23 September.

The store, frustrated with repeat shoplifting incidents, posted stills from CCTV footage on social media in an effort to help track down the thief.

Maher told New Zealand Herald she also hoped to track down a woman who allegedly stole vibrating sex toys on Friday before running out the door and jumping into a getaway car.

"She just did it so quickly. She knew what she was after so must have been casing it for a while," Maher told the newspaper.

"I went out there and tried to open her door. I knew she'd stolen something... I was going to jump on the boot.

"I work 13-hour days on a Friday, and it ruins your whole day."

She said the store was targeted by thieves about once a week.
