Underwear bandits steal $4,200 worth of Victoria’s Secret panties, cops seek help in exposing thieves

The Evesham Township Police Department is on the lookout for a trio of underwear bandits.

In what looks to be a well thought out heist, two men and a woman were captured on surveillance video entering a New Jersey Victoria’s Secret store intent on loading up on women’s drawers and they were quite successful, according to police.

Law enforcement officials said in a Facebook post that featured the video footage the trio absconded with 400 pairs of women’s underwear, valued at $4,200.

The store is known for its upscale product.

The thieves are suspected of raiding other Victoria’s Secret stores in the New York area, which makes one wonder why the heck they need so many pairs of underwear?

Then again, an online tagline from Victoria’s Secret states: “Because you can never have too many basics or too many little luxuries.”

“On September 25, 2019, at 7:32 pm, the pictured suspects shoplifted approximately 400 pairs of undergarments valued at $4,200.00 from Victoria’s Secret, 300 S. Rt. 73 Marlton, NJ.,” the Facebook post said.

As seen in the video, once inside the store, the suspects immediately go to a display table full of undergarments.

The thieves were in and out in well under a minute, and it’s possible that the store clerk(s) may not have even had time to see the crime take place.
