Police believe the thief targeted a display in the front of the store, according to the Tribune.

He said store personnel believe the theft happened the night before while the store was open. There was no damage and it was not a break-in, Northbrook police spokesman Michael Shep said.

The bras were valued at $9,675, or an average of more than $63 apiece.

Police are strapped for clues in the crime, and if you know anything, they could use your support as they move to find and bust the culprit.

    Hey, don’t forget there was a real crime comitted here now. My gut says it was an inside job. All they have to do is compare the cup sizes of the bras stolen to the employees breast sizes and then perhaps do a line up or something. I will be more than happy to volunteer my expertise in this matter.
