Earlier this month, three shoplifters walked out of a Victoria's Secret store on Flatbush Avenue with 44 stolen bras, valued at $1,295. According to DNAinfo, a loss prevention officer on the scene recognized one of them from another panty heist at a Victoria's Secret in Queens. Which begs the question: how many lacy padded bras does one man actually need?
The silver lining is that at least the bras will still be wearable once they're reclaimed by the police or bought somewhere in Chinatown. The 65 pairs of underwear that suffered death by chili in Yonkers are a different story.
