Three thieves made off with $7,800 in lingerie on Thursday by taking shipment boxes from Victoria's Secret at East Towne Mall.

The theft was reported Thursday evening, Madison police said.

"The trio was able to make off with two shipment boxes filled with items destined for store shelves," said police spokesman Joel DeSpain.

The trio drove away in a black Dodge minivan that possibly had Nebraska license plates.

The suspects are a white man in his 30s, short black hair, dark eyes, no facial hair, average build; a white female in her 20s with long dark-blonde hair worn in a ponytail; and a white female in her 20s with long brown or black hair worn in a ponytail, also wearing a neck brace.
