Rock Hill Police arrested a Georgia woman Thursday afternoon after Victoria’s Secret employees accused her of trying to steal 118 pairs of panties from the Rock Hill Galleria store.

Employees told officers the merchandise is valued at more than $1,700, according to police records. The woman is accused of putting the underwear in her purse but then dumping the items back on the store table after being confronted, police say.

Authorities say she then ran out of the store but was caught by mall security. Rock Hill officers charged Nathalia Martinez, age 31, of Lawrenceville, Georgia, with first offense shoplifting, according to the police report.
