Strange but true: IT'S VALENTINE'S DAY HOT PANTS; Stolen knickers flogged to mean partners.

Byline: Edited by KEITH CHALKLEY

A GANG of shoplifters robbed a lingerie store in a pre-Valentine's Day spree.

More than 150 lacey bras and pants were stolen from upmarket Victoria's Secret in Seattle, Washington State.

The nicked stock was worth pounds 4000 and police believe the knocked-off knickers will be sold to cheapskate romantics to give to their partners.

The same store was hit twice last year when 300 pairs of women's panties were swiped. A police spokesman said: 'We are pretty sure the items were stolen for resale.

'Shoplifters look at the ease of stealing items, the ease of selling items and staffing levels at stores.

'Stolen bras and panties are very difficult to trace they're small items that can be hidden easily.'
