Here is a sampling of wacky crimes straight from Broward police reports:
Watch out, Victoria's Secret. A man walked into Maidenform, an undergarment store, at Sawgrass Mills Mall in Sunrise at 6:04 p.m. Jan. 3 and stole bras. Lots of them. According to a police report, three men snatched 314 bras, valued at $6,640, and three Maidenform pajamas that cost a total of $54. The manager realized the store had been burglarized when she saw a wall of merchandise half-empty.
A Pembroke Pines woman called police after someone broke into her unlocked 2005 Hyundai Tucson, while it was parked in front of her home in the 1600 block of Northwest 96th Avenue on Jan. 7. No windows were smashed, no purses stolen, no valuables gone. Well, except for $1.50 in coins, which were taken out of the center console. That's a lot of work for 150 pennies.
Thefts at construction sites are not uncommon - tools are taken, sometimes even building supplies. But this is something new: A $1,330 wooden staircase was stolen from a Miramar construction site at 2643 SW 99th Way. The incident happened sometime between Dec. 20 and Jan. 4.
