BOCA RATON, Fla., March 2 (UPI) -- Police in Florida said two women, one with the last name Pink, have been arrested in connection with the thefts of hundreds of Victoria's Secret undergarments.

Boca Raton and Boynton Beach police said the women, Tysheka Pink, 29, of Miami, and Katina Summerset, 39, of Florida City, are accused of stealing more than $34,000 worth of bras and panties from the Victoria's Secret stores in the Boynton Beach Mall and Town Center in Boca Raton on repeated occasions beginning in October, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported Friday.

Investigators said they identified the women after one of them was seen returning some of the stolen merchandise to a Victoria's Secret store in Miami Beach. They were arrested Wednesday at the Town Center mall after Pink was recognized by a security guard.

Police said the women, whose thefts were recorded by security cameras, were charged with multiple counts of organized fraud, grand theft and retail theft. Pink was being held Friday at the Palm Beach County Jail while Summerset was released after posting $4,500 bond.
