Police say a man and woman have stolen more than $9,000 worth of women's undergarments from a department store in Wyoming's capital.

Officer Dan Long, a Cheyenne police spokesman, says the shoplifters made off with just over 1,000 pairs of panties from the J.C. Penney store in a local mall Wednesday afternoon.

Video surveillance shows the two leaving the store with a large plastic bag.

Long says store employees did not notice the theft until several minutes after it happened and the pair got away before police arrived.

Police estimate roughly 800 pairs of Ambrielle brand underwear and 200 pairs of Flirtitude brand garments were taken.
