A New York City teen who authorities say was caught with a fetus in her bag at a lingerie store has pleaded not guilty to shoplifting charges.

The New York Post reports (http://bit.ly/1c5o6lV ) that the 17-year-old entered the plea Saturday to petit larceny and possession of stolen property charges in Manhattan Criminal Court. She's not been charged in the discovery of the fetus.

The medical examiner's office says an autopsy of the remains is inconclusive and more tests are needed to determine the cause of death. Police say investigators are awaiting the medical examiner's findings.

The remains were discovered Thursday when a security guard stopped the girl and her friend at a Victoria's Secret store in midtown Manhattan. Both are 17.

A judge denied $1,000 bail for the girl.
