Woman Allegedly Swipes $21,000 Worth of Victoria's Secret Underwear
Police say a woman and a juvenile are under arrest.
Police say a woman and a juvenile are under arrest after they were accused of stealing $21,000 worth of underwear from Victoria’s Secret.
Authorities in Lower Allen Township, Pennsylvania, say 18-year-old Aida Melcado and a minor allegedly walked into a Victoria’s Secret store at the Capital City Mall.
The minor allegedly acted as a lookout, while Melcado allegedly snatched panties from display tables and drawers and jammed them into her bag.
Cops say they got away with about 2,000 pairs — including 1,375 thongs, according to WPMT.
About two weeks later, authorities say, Melcado and the minor were arrested during a drug investigation in Fairfax County, Virginia.
Both were charged. Cops say they had also allegedly stolen items from a Victoria’s Secret in Bethesda, Maryland.
It is unclear if Melcado has an attorney.
