Police are searching for three people who stole nearly $1,200 worth of bras and underwear from a Victoria’s Secret store in Fairfield, Connecticut.
According to police, two women and a man ran into the store at 1499 Post Road while employees were changing shifts around 4 p.m. Oct. 3. The suspect filled two large shopping bags with $1,184 in stolen merchandise and fled the store.
They were last seen running southbound on Reef Road. An employee working at the time told police the suspects cleared out an entire shelf and drawer and got away with 20 bras and 50 pairs of underwear. She wasn’t sure if the suspects got into a car.
Police said there are no security cameras in the store. The employee told officers all bras are tagged with security sensors, but no alarms went off in the store. Authorities believe the shopping bags used during the theft were lined with foil or a “sensor defeating material.”
The suspects are described as two slender black women and a black man all standing about 5 feet 7 inches tall. The employee said she had never seen them before.
Anyone with information is urged to call Fairfield police at 203-254-4800.
