Atlanta police are searching for a shoplifter who appears to have Valentine’s Day sales in mind.
A woman pilfered 785 pairs of panties at the Victoria’s Secret at Lenox Square Mall on Saturday, Officer Ralph Woolfolk said Thursday.
The suspected thief put the panties in three shopping bags in a raid on the store lasting two hours and absconded, Woolfolk said.
Retail for the panties was estimated at more than $10,000.
Atlanta detectives hope the public can help and have released surveillance photos of the suspect, described as a black woman wearing a red hat, a white and black T-shirt, a black jacket, blue jeans, and red and white tennis shoes.
Anyone who knows the identity of the individual is asked to call Crime Stoppers. Any information can be submitted anonymously to the Crime Stoppers Atlanta tip line at 404-577-TIPS (8477), online www.crimestoppersatlanta.org or by texting to CRIMES (274637). Callers don’t have to give names or any identifying information to be eligible for a reward of up to $2,000.
