SAN DIEGO, Dec. 1 (UPI) -- A couple of brazen young men waltzed into a Victoria's Secret shop in San Diego this week and waltzed out with about 300 pairs of panties, police said.

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.
