Biloxi police say three females stuffed merchandise in their large bags while shoplifting at Victoria's Secret on Feb. 23.

Three young women had a couple of things in common during a recent visit to Victoria’s Secret.

The alleged shoplifting suspects each carried a large bag and had a fondness for a particular brand of apparel, Police Detective Nick Sonnier said.

They walked into Victoria’s Secret and shoplifted more than $2,000 in pajamas on Feb. 23, Sonnier said.

They took Very Sexy For Her sleepwear — “knit tops, shorts and bottoms,” Sonnier said.

The store at Edgewater Mall called police about 8 p.m.

Surveillance cameras took pictures of them as they arrived in a vehicle, stuffed merchandise in their bags and left in the same vehicle, Sonnier said.

It’s unclear if the young women are adults or teenagers, but they each face a charge of felony shoplifting.

Investigators want to hear from anyone who recognizes them or knows where they can be found.
