The shoplifters mixed in with the crowd hunting for alluring Christmas gifts at the busy downtown shopping center and made off with a shopping bag stuffed with the company's trademark panties, which don't take up a lot of room.
Police said the theft went undetected until employees noticed about half of their panty inventory was missing.
The Los Angeles Times said a careful inspection of the Victoria's Secret website revealed the prices for the missing panties ranged from three for $33 to four for $28.
