Victoria's Secret in Boca Raton loses 600 pairs of panties to thieves

BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) -- Police are looking for suspects who stole hundreds of pairs of panties from a lingerie store in Boca Raton's Town Center mall.

Boca Raton police say about 600 pairs of panties worth an estimated $6,300 were stolen from Victoria's Secret last week.

The South Florida Sun Sentinel ( ) reports the thefts came nine days after police arrested two Miami-Dade County women linked to an elaborate fraud that has targeted Victoria's Secret stores across South Florida since October.

Police say surveillance video shows two women stealing the panties around 2:30 a.m. on March 9. Investigators haven't said whether the women are linked to the lingerie ring.

The newspaper reports the Victoria's Secret in nearby Boynton Beach has been hit 11 times. The Boca location has been hit at least four times.
