A pair of women from Edmond, Oklahoma were arrested following an incident within a Edmond TJ Maxx. The women tucked the stolen goods under their belly fat rolls and beneath their breasts. Police investigating the incident maintain the women were caught by loss prevention officers within the store upon loading their bodies with $2,600 dollars worth of store merchandise. Officer James Hamm reported to Oklahoma City's News 4: "These two were actually concealing them in areas of their body where excess skin was, under their chest area and armpits."
The women, identified as twenty eight year old Ailene Brown and thirty seven year old Shemco Thomas, reportedly lined four pairs of boots, three pairs of jeans, a wallet, and a pair of gloves. They now face felony charges.
Upon arrest, officers also found Brown in possession of a knife which, as she confessed, was used to slice prices from merchandise.
