Police investigating two girls for shoplifting from a New York City Victoria’s Secret found some stolen lingerie as well as something much more sinister: a dead human fetus.

A security guard saw the girls shoplifting and called the cops. The fetus was discovered nestled amid stolen lingerie, police say. The odor tipped off cops immediately after the girls were stopped.

Tiona Rodriguez, of Brooklyn, and Francis Estevez, of Queens, both 17 were charged with petty larceny and possession of stolen property.

Rodriguez told police she had miscarriage the day before and didn’t know what to do. She was taken to the hospital. 

NYC’s medical examiner will perform an autopsy of the fetus.
