Wilkes-Barre (PA): First they took the bras. Now they’ve come back for the panties. Police say 140 pairs of underwear have been stolen from a northeast Pennsylvania store that's been struck by four bra heists since February.
The manager of an undergarment store reported the Thursday afternoon theft but couldn’t provide a description of the suspect or surveillance video. The underpants are valued at $2,180 (approximately
Rs 1.3 lakh). Thieves have already stolen more than 150 bras from the store at the Wyoming Valley Mall in Wilkes-Barre Township, striking twice in February and once in March and April.
Surveillance video of the April theft showed two women stuffing bras into a bag. Police say the store never turned over video of three previous thefts. The stolen bras are valued at more than $7,700 (R4.9 lakh).
