PEABODY, Mass. — Peabody police are investigating the theft of almost $4,000 worth of women's undergarments from the Victoria's Secret at the Northshore Mall.

The pilfering of 72 bras worth $52 each reported Thursday is the latest of nine thefts from the store since April, but may be the biggest.

The Salem News reports that a store employee contacted police around 1 p.m. Thursday to report the theft.

The store reported the loss of $1,500 of merchandise just a week ago. Before that, it reported that 60 bras had been stolen in the days before July 16, and on June 9 "another high-volume panty larceny" had occurred.

In another incident in May, store workers say 165 pairs of underwear had been stolen.

There have been no arrests in any of the thefts.
