An Arizona suspect was arrested on Thursday after allegedly robbing Victoria’s Secret stores in Tempe at least 17 times.
Ismael Flores, 23, was charged with nearly two dozen counts of shoplifting and theft. He was also charged with a drug offense after officers reportedly caught him carrying pills during his arrest.
Court documents obtained by FOX 10 Phoenix say that Flores stole underwear, bras and pants at the Victoria’s Secret locations between October 2022 and March 2023. Flores is also suspected of robbing Target stores in South Phoenix.
The 23-year-old suspect would stuff the clothes in a trash bag or load the items into a shopping cart and flee, the court documents said.
