MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) -- Friday January 4th at the Shoppes at Bel Air -- two women are seen walking into the Victoria's Secret Pink store. They were all smiles walking past the $6.99 bins heading straight to the athletic wear.

To watch the surveillance video, it appears as though they're browsing. But if you watch long enough they each start making their own piles of shirts.

One of the women, who has shorter hair in the video, eventually stuffs her selections in one of her shopping bags. But she wasn't done. A few looks around the store and a minute later she goes for another stack of clothes.

The other woman, who has long hair in the video, was a bit more careful. She waited a little longer to use her five finger discount.

Had it not been for all those surveillance cameras with so many different angles -- the two might have gotten away with it.

Investigators say they took more than $2,000 worth of merchandise. Maybe you've seen them wearing their new finds or you recognize them -- if so call Mobile Police 251-208-7211.

Meanwhile, if you have video of someone "Caught In The Act" -- email it to us at We just might show it in our newscast.
