Pennsylvania police believe they may have broken up an interstate underwear theft ring after nabbing four people they say stole $2,200 in bras in suburban Philadelphia.
Police arrested four people after Victoria's Secret employees in Media, Pa., reported a theft more than a week ago, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Officials believe the men may have been behind a string of thefts that took an estimated $600,000 to $1 million from the company.
Police arrested three of the men in a gray Dodge Magnum with Rhode Island plates leaving the Granite Run Mall with bras, fake receipts, cut security tags and gift cards in their possession, officials said. A fourth man was arrested inside the mall while carrying Victoria's Secret bags.
"If what Victoria's Secret is saying proves to be true, this is a pretty significant arrest," Sunderlin told the paper.
The men were arraigned Monday on theft, conspiracy and other charges and sent to Delaware County Prison, the paper said.
