Women steal 45 bras worth a total of $2,000 from Coquitlam store

Police are on the hunt for a pair who lifted several dozen bras from a store in Coquitlam Centre.

According to Coquitlam Mounties, the bra theft happened Sunday at an unnamed store in the mall, when two women walked in and started dumping the bras from a drawer into a bag.
They quickly took off, making off with 45 bras worth a total of $2,000.

RCMP Cpl. Jamie Chung said the theft isn’t all that unusual.

“I’ve seen in the past people would go into a department store and grab 10 Hugo Boss or Calvin Klein suits and run out of the store,” he told the Tri-Cities NOW.

There is no description of the two women, but investigators are in the process of getting video surveillance.

Besides catching the crooks, police want the theft to be a reminder to the public to be careful what they buy online, suggesting the items will likely end up for sale there.
“When you’re stealing 45 bras, chances are you’re not wearing them yourself,” Chung said.

The RCMP sent this tweet on Monday about the crime: “Buyers Beware: 45 bras stolen from store @coquitlamcentre. Only buy from reputable retailers & re-sellers.”
