CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - Crooks were caught on camera stealing more than $8,000 worth of merchandise from Victoria's Secret!
It happened in broad daylight at Chesterfield Towne Center, and police say the suspects struck more than one store.
Police say the crooks stole more than $8,500 in merchandise from Victoria's Secret.
"We aren't talking about the $2.00 pair or the free pair," shopper William Green said. "We are talking about the $40 pair of underwear."
William Green says he has been in retail for 10 years.
"Ain't no way in the world somebody going to walk out of the store with $8,000 worth of drawers and you don't know," Green said.
That's why police are releasing surveillance images to the public, but Green can't help wondering one thing.
"How they get out the store?" Green asked.
Police say a white male and white female worked together to steal women's undergarments from the Victoria's Secret in Chesterfield Towne Center on Sept. 7, 2015. Police say the female suspect was pulling clothing from display racks and putting it into a large bag being carried by the male suspect.
Police also say, just prior to stealing from Victoria's Secret, the same two suspects had stolen numerous clothing items from the Hollister store in the same shopping mall.
"They are going to have to try to get rid of that somehow," Kevin Bacon with Chesterfield Police said. "There are people who need to be on the lookout for a white male and white female possible selling these items."
Bacon has a warning for the public.
"People need to be aware that they are purchasing items that they know the price is way too low for," Bacon said. "There is a possibility they could also get in trouble for possession of stolen property."
The suspects now face felony charges, and Green's convinced their days on the run are numbered.
"I have never in my life seen someone steal more than $20 or $30 dollars worth of merchandise and not get caught," Green said.
Victoria's Secret released this statement:
"We take matters of theft seriously and work closely and in cooperation with local state and federal authorities on these types of investigations."
