Some of the Victoria Secret “panty raiders” were rounded up by Murfreesboro Police officers Tuesday, Dec. 12 at The Avenue on Medical Center Parkway, according to arrest reports filed by the Murfreesboro Police Department.
As we have seen, many people like to steal underthings from Victoria's Secret in The Avenue. One such panty raid this week resulted in the arrest of four people from Nashville.
Whitney E. Parrish, 43, Kiondra L. Martin, 39, Keytoya D. Johnson, 37, and Terrice M. Holt, 36, all of Nashville are all facing charges related to allegedly stealing from multiple stores in The Avenue and Nashville.
Holt told police officers he had a “large magnet that is used to defeat anti-theft devices” in his jacket.
While officers interviewed Holt, one saw Martin “pull clothing from under her clothing and throw it under the vehicle,” the report said.
Officers reported having found more clothes of questionable origin, two other magnet and several devices to remove anti-theft tags from clothing near or in the suspect vehicle.
A probable cause search turned up nearly $1,400 in stolen merchandise from Victoria Secret, Osh Kosh and Children's Place on the seats of the vehicle. Another more than $1,775-worth of clothes from Ross Dress for Less was found in the trunk, according to the arrest report.
“After being Mirandized, all admitted to stealing items from Ross in Nashville 100 Oaks Mall and to stealing from some or all stores in The Avenue,” the report said.
As Parrish confessed to the thefts, she “pulled clothing out of her bra,” the report said.
All four of the suspects were charged with theft over $1,000 and possession of thieves' tools.
They were booked into the Rutherford County jail and await a court date set for Feb. 27, 2018.
