Thieves Plunder Victoria's Secret in Pennsylvania Yet Again

have been stolen from a northeast Pennsylvania store that's been struck by four

reported the theft on Thursday afternoon but couldn't provide a description of
the suspect or surveillance video. The underpants are valued at $2,180. Thieves

Thieves Caught In Minnesota May Be Linked To Louis Vuitton 'Smash-And-Grab' in
Chicago Oak Brook police say a gang of high-end purse thieves caught earlier
this week in Minnesota may be responsible for a "smash-and-grab"-style theft at
a Louis Vuitton store in the western suburb late last year. Minnesota
authorities on Wednesday chased a vehicle after they received an emergency call.
Eight men, all from Chicago, were taken into custody in Edina, Minn. after
walking out of a Louis Vuitton store with $20,000 in merchandise. "They all came
in at once and overwhelmed the store clerk," Edina Police Lt. Brian Tholen said.
What the thieves weren't counting on was an alert person in the parking lot who
saw the men get into the van with the bags, some costing more than $1,000 each.
