Two women in Oklahoma were stopped as they tried to smuggle $2,600 of clothing and accessories inside rolls of body fat.
Ailene Brown, 28, and Shmeco Thomas, 37, were busted by a TJ Maxx employee as they tucked away FOUR pairs of boots, THREE pairs of jeans, a wallet and some gloves in the creases under their breasts and across their bellies.
Some of the goods were also found in their handbags.
The pair were arrested at the discount store by Edmond police on felony shoplifting charges.
Officer James Hamm struggled to explain the nature of the crime to a local television station.
‘These two were actually concealing them in areas of their body where excess skin was, underneath their, um, chest area, um, and their armpits and things of that nature.’
Police say the women cut the security tags off the goods with a knife found in Brown’s bag.
