Brazen thieves steal $4,000 in Victoria's Secret items

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - San Diego police are searching for two young men who made off with an estimated $4,000 worth of high-end lingerie from a Victoria's Secret at Horton Plaza this past Wednesday.

The suspects were caught on surveillance camera entering the store, one of them carrying a large shopping bag. His accomplice then scooped up about 300 pairs of panties on display on a table near the entrance, and deposits them in the bag. Moments later, both men leave the store, unnoticed by any of the employees.

"It's not a petty theft or grand theft," said Lt. Andra Brown of the San Diego police department. "It is a felony burglary because they went into that business with the intent to steal."

These types of "grab-and-go" operations are occurring more frequently, according to police.

Earlier this month, authorities arrested several members of a highly organized burglary ring that targeted Bloomingdale's, Hollisters and Abercrombie & Fitch at Fashion Valley Mall in Mission Valley.

Police are asking for the public's assistance in trying to track down the suspects in this recent burglary. Anyone with information is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 888-580-8477.
