Armed robber steals thousands from Victoria's Secret storePosted: Updated:
Clarkstown police are searching for a man who they say stole $16,000 at gunpoint from a Victoria's Secret store at the Palisades Mall earlier this week.
Police say the suspect, who was caught on tape, entered behind several employees who were opening up the store. At some point, he brandished a handgun and made off with two bags containing the cash.
Clarkstown Police Sgt. Harry Bauman says today's crime is one of the only armed robberies he can recall in the mall's 12-year history.
Police are investigating the incident and the possibility that it may have been an inside job.
