Suspects Steal 300 Pairs of Panties: Cops
Two men stole the undergarments from a Victoria's Secret store at Horton Plaza
Detectives are looking for two men who were caught on surveillance tape stealing about 300 pairs of panties from a Victoria’s Secret store in downtown San Diego.
According to the San Diego Police Department, the panty raid took place on Wednesday at around 4:45 p.m. at the Victoria’s Secret in the Horton Plaza shopping mall.
While one suspect walked around the store pretending to browse for merchandise, a second suspect carrying a shopping bag walked over to an underwear display.
The suspect carrying the shopping bag held it open while the first suspect scooped about 300 pairs of panties into the bag, police said.
The suspect with the bag full of underwear then walked out of the store while the other suspect lingered inside for another 15 seconds before walking out.
According to police, store employees were unaware of the theft until they noticed the display had been ransacked, and about half of its merchandise had been removed.
The display was located roughly 10 feet from the door of the lingerie store, police said.
Detectives described both suspects as Hispanic males between 18 and 25 years old. They’re both between 5-foot-6 and 5-foot-9, with thin to medium builds.
One man was wearing a black sweater and jeans while the other wore a blue shirt and gray shorts.
The burglary was caught on surveillance video, so police are using those images to investigate, identify and locate the suspects
