2018 has hit a local retail store hard in the form of thievery. Surveillance video looks as if two women are stealing merchandise from a Port Charlotte Town Center Victoria’s Secret on Tamiami Trail. However, it hasn’t happened once or twice, but three times this month. The first video was dated Jan. 7th and shows two women leaving the store with roughly $1,000 worth of goodies in their bags. They were chased, but never found. The last two weeks have produced two additional acts of stealing totaling over $2,500 worth of merchandise.
