(Newser) – First they took the bras. Now they've come back for the panties. Police say 140 pairs of underwear have been stolen from a northeast Pennsylvania store that's been struck by four bra heists since February. Police say the manager of the Victoria's Secret store reported the theft on Thursday afternoon but couldn't provide a description of the suspect or surveillance video. The underpants are valued at $2,180.

Thieves have already stolen more than 150 bras from the store at the Wyoming Valley Mall in Wilkes-Barre Township, striking twice in February and once each in March and April. Surveillance video of the April theft showed two women stuffing bras into a bag. Police say the store never turned over video of three previous thefts. The stolen bras are valued at more than $7,700.
