Temple police are looking for a suspect after more than 200 pairs of panties worth more than $5,000 were stolen during the grand opening of a local Victoria’s Secret store.

“Five thousand dollars-worth of panties is a lot of panties,” Temple police Officer Shawana Neeley said, “but it is Victoria’s Secret, so maybe not that many.”

Police were sent just after 1 p.m. last Thursday to the Temple Mall where Victoria’s Secret was hosting a grand opening of its new Temple store, Neeley said.

The store manager called police after employees discovered dozens of pairs of “Very Sexy” panties were missing from a display table inside the store, Neeley said.

The stolen panties retailed for between $14.50 and $25 a pair, which means the thief got away with about 250 pairs.

Police believe the theft happened sometime between 10 a.m. and 12:20 p.m. last Thursday.
