Selling Stolen Bras On EBay Is Not Legal According to NY Police

September 3, 2008


A New York man has been charged with selling $80,000 worth of stolen Victoria’s Secret bras online. Prosecutors say 41-year-old George Tutaya was arraigned Tuesday on charges of possessing stolen property. He faces up to seven years in prison if convicted. A telephone call to his attorney hasn’t been returned. Prosecutors say Tutaya used eBay auction and PayPal payment accounts to sell the brassieres for about $25 each. The bras retail for $40 to $80. Prosecutors say records recovered at Tutaya’s home in Queens link him to the sale of more than 2,000 bras. They say another 650 stolen bras were recovered in his home.
