This week in Victoria’s Secret thefts: Three women walked into the store. Employees didn’t notice anyone take anything, but the sensor alarm went off when one of the women walked out.

A man was walking north on America Street when someone jumped out of the bushes near the intersection of Stuart Street, pulled out a gun, and told him, “Give me everything in your pockets. I ain’t gonna hurt you. I have kids to feed.” The bush thief walked away with $340 in cash and a $550 Gucci belt.
