Police say teenagers stole $21K worth of Victoria's Secret panties

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Police in Pennsylvania have identified two suspects accused of stealing $21,000 worth of Victoria's Secret underwear last month.
  
Lower Allen Township police say an 18-year-old woman and a juvenile they aren't naming entered the store at the Capital City Mall near Harrisburg on April 7. Police say the juvenile acted as a lookout as Aida Melcado took panties from a table and from drawers and stuffed them in a bag.
  
Police tell WPMT-TV that they took about 2,000 pairs.
  
Police say the two were identified by officers performing a drug investigation in Fairfax, Virginia, less than two weeks later. Melcado and the juvenile also were in possession of stolen merchandise from a Victoria's Secret store in Bethesda, Maryland, and both were charged.
  
An arrest warrant was issued Friday for Melcado involving the Pennsylvania theft. A contact number for her wasn't listed. It wasn't clear if she has a lawyer to comment.
