SPRINGFIELD -- Bra bandits have struck in the Capital City. Police say three women stole more than $3,000 in merchandise from Victoria's Secret at White Oaks Mall.

Authorities say the suspects went into the store and immediately split up. All were carrying unzipped purses.

Employees say the women distracted them. After they left, workers discovered more than 60-bras missing.
