Honest patrons didn't steal from unlocked Victoria's Secret store

Honest Patrons Didn't Steal From Unlocked Victoria's Secret Store

Browsing at Victoria's Secret on a Sunday morning might not seem unusual, but some New York customers who did just that were in for a surprise.

On Sunday, an unlocked door allowed patrons to enter the Manhattan store before it was actually open for business. They had no idea the store was supposed to be closed -- after all, the lights were even on!

But even more surprising: No one attempted to swipe any merchandise - or apparently buy anything, either.

The door's lock reportedly broke at some point when people had tried to enter the store earlier that morning.

According to the New York Post, there's usually a security guard posted at the store, but he wasn't there that day. Still, surveillance footage showed that all the patrons were very honest.

Some are rather surprised nothing was stolen from a store in an area that sees such heavy traffic on a daily basis.

Fox News reports someone finally called police 15 minutes before the store was scheduled to open.

And as seen on WFOR, thankfully, the incident didn't turn out like the one at a Florida Victoria's Secret in January, when some very dishonest people stole $11,000 worth of bras and panties - all captured on surveillance.

The doors to the Manhattan store were chained after police arrived.

In bigger news: I left my vacation house door unlocked. Family showed up and made themselves at home. When the food ran out,... so did they. I locked the door after them. .

Okay Aol, don't forget to put a 1 minute stupid video before this lame post.

You were lucky that they left after the food ran out! Most of these leeches like to claim the property as their own after squatting in it over a length of time!

Isn't it sad that in America today being "honest" and "not stealing" is news!

You are right, but look at America for the last 40 years.

It shows that people are honest, and taking items they hadn't paid for is a very good thing. And for VS they may know an important SECRET to, women want the items they purchase to fit and in colors of their own selection. Good story

But even more surprising: No one attempted to swipe any merchandise - or apparently buy anything, either. Unfortunately however, all the mannequins suffered trauma due to gang rape. . .

Why are there so many people that are surprised that no one took anything? The vast majority of the people are honest......

Funny story: Many years ago I was in Amsterdam with a friend. We went into a bar on Christmas Eve and proceeded to get hammered with a very friendly group of customers and an extremely jovial bartender. At some point, the bartender passed out. My friend and I jumped behind the counter and continued to serve the drinks. People handed us money and we couldn't figure out how to open the cash register so we just stuck the paper money on a spindle next to the register. The bartender awoke a few hours later and seemed-at first- angry and worried that somehow we had ripped him off. Boy did he smile when he saw the huge pile of cash on the spindle. Always been an honest person and always will be!
