One half of a dynamic duo accused of stealing an estimated $2,500 worth of underwear in a string of thefts on Staten Island has been arrested, cops said.
The suspect, 28-year-old Anthony Ellison of Staten Island, was charged with petit larceny and criminal possession of stolen property.
The female suspect is still at large.
The pair hit the same Victoria’s Secret in the Staten Island Mall twice in January, police said. The incidents were a little over two weeks apart.
For the first robbery on New Year’s Day the pair stole 80 pairs of underwear valued at $ 1,000. The second robbery on Jan.16 included 80 pairs of underwear valued at $ 1,000 stolen from the store.
Oddly enough, this same exact Victoria’s Secret has been the target of shoplifitng before.
Metro reported in 2013 that another duo was caught on camera stealing $2,000 worth of underwear.
