A Queens man was arrested and charged with selling $80,000 worth of stolen Victoria's Secret bras online. George Tutaya, 41, set up eBay usernames and PayPal accounts to sell the bras, which retail between $40-80, for just $25 a pop. It's believed he got the bras from a shoplifting ring and he sold over 2,000. When police went to his home, they found another 650 bras. He is being held on $7,500 bail; a neighbor described the Tutayas as a quiet family. And Queens DA Richard Brown said, "Trafficking in stolen goods on the Internet will no more be tolerated than fencing stolen property would be anywhere else."
