ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Call them the lingerie looters: St. Petersburg police are searching for thieves who made off with thousands of dollars’ worth of lingerie from Victoria’s Secret.

Thieves hit the St. Petersburg store three times in January. Surveillance cameras have recorded the heist.

Some of the thieves act as lookouts and provide a distraction while another person makes the grab.

St. Petersburg police believe they’ve stolen at least $7,500 worth of women’s undergarments.

Investigators believe the ring may be connected to a larger group targeting stores and malls around the Sunshine State.
