Pennsylvania Victoria Secret thief accused of stealing $21K in merchandise caught in Fairfax County

Police have identified two suspects accused of stealing $21,000 worth of Victoria's Secret underwear from a Harrisburg, Pennsylvania location last month.

The suspected thief was taken into custody when Fairfax County police officers were investigating a suspicious vehicle near Fair Oaks Mall.

Lower Allen Township, Pennsylvania police say an 18-year-old woman and a juvenile they aren't naming entered the store at the Capital City Mall near Harrisburg on April 7. Police say the juvenile acted as a lookout as Aida Melcado took panties from a table and from drawers and stuffed them in a bag.

Police tell WPMT-TV that they took about 2,000 pairs.

Police say the pair were in possession of stolen merchandise from a Victoria's Secret store in Bethesda, Maryland, and both were charged. A third suspect, Foussenou Traore, was also arrested in Virginia.

An arrest warrant was issued Friday for Melcado involving the Pennsylvania theft. A contact number for her wasn't listed. It wasn't clear if she has a lawyer to comment.
