    Thieves Steal 300 Pairs of Panties: Cops

    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.

    The panty raid took place on Wednesday at 4:45 p.m. at the Victoria’s Secret in the Horton Plaza shopping mall, police said.

    While one thief walked around the store pretending to browse for merchandise, a second thief carrying a shopping bag walked over to an underwear display.

    The man carrying the shopping bag held it open while the other man scooped about 300 pairs of panties into the bag, police said.

    The one carrying the bag full of underwear then walked out of the store while the other lingered inside for another 15 seconds before walking out.

    Store employees were unaware of the theft until they noticed the display had been ransacked, and about half of its merchandise had been removed, police said.

    The display was located roughly 10 feet from the door of the lingerie store, police said.

    Detectives described both men as Hispanic 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. Anyone with information on this case is asked to contact the SDPD at (619) 744-9500.
