TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

TODAY'S MOST...Unusual Crime Family: Police just arrested a couple and their adult daughter, and charged them with stealing over $7 million dollars worth of merchandise over the last decade and selling it on eBay.

The FBI finally tracked 58-year old Branko Bogdanov, his wife Lela, and daughter Julia on a four-day, cross-country stealing spree last month. The family robbed stores like Barnes & Nobles and Toys R Us. The feds say they have surveillance video of Lela wearing a special coat that had compartments inside she filled with all the stuff she stole.

The Bogdanovs stole all sorts of items. Things like Lego blocks, expensive dolls, electronics, toys, cosmetics -- even bags of coffee from Starbucks. They worked with another man to sell all of the stuff on eBay and made over $4 million in profit.

The family went to Texas, Maryland, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Florida, and Tennessee to steal over the years. 

They lived in a house in a nice suburb of Chicago that's worth over $1.3 million dollars.
