A 45-year-old Minneapolis man is facing one felony count of aggravated theft after a string of thefts at the Victoria's Secret in Uptown, where he allegedly took over $2,000 in bras, underwear and perfume, the Minnesota Daily reported.

According to the criminal complaint, the manager of the Hennepin Avenue store called police on Thursday to report that a man had just stolen a large number of bras from the store, Fox 9 said.

KARE 11 said officers were called to the store on March 29 and told by the store manager that a man had just walked out after stealing a large number of bras. They quickly spotted the suspect walking down Lake Street and arrested 45-year-old Elbert Lee Wilkins.

According to the Minnesota Daily, Wilkins theft from the incident totaled $682 and is accused of other reported thefts in the area in recent days.

Charging documents accuse Wilkins of also stealing $121.47 worth of curling irons from the CVS Pharmacy on Lake Street on March 15, and stealing $374 worth of perfume and $312.50 in underwear from Victoria's Secret on March 22. He is also accused in another bra theft of $681.

If convicted, Wilkins may spend up to five years behind bars and could also be subject to a $10,000 fine.
