Some people like butter – others, jelly. But two Oklahoma ladies like boots in their rolls. It’s hard to believe – and even grosser to imagine. KFOR has the juicy details.
REPORTER: “Police say it was at this TJ Maxx that loss prevention officers found the duo stuffing items under their belly fat and breasts.”
POLICE OFFICER: “One of the individual had three boots concealed underneath her breast and bra.”
Believe it. The women lifted $2600 worth of merchandise in all. But anchors on HLN and WJBK can’t get over the big-ticket item – boots.
MEADE: “Four pairs of boots! Boots. Three pairs of jeans, wallet and gloves.”
MEADE: “Well my goodness! Either those are small boots—wow! Okay, I can’t see any of this, but the jeans you can fold, the wallet is tiny. Boots (whispered)…”
FEMALE ANCHOR: “I find that hard to believe. I mean, you’ve got to be packing some pounds. I mean, four pairs of boots?!”
MALE ANCHOR: “But see, you can pat down at the airport, but not in the store.”
The footwear didn’t escape others’ attention. Writers at The Huffington Post and Racked ask if the strategy is worth its weight in boots.
THE HUFFINGTON POST: “…[W]hat we want to know is were they ankle boots? Or over-the-knee?”
RACKED: “[I]t got us thinking… we might be able to get away with a Repetto ballet flat—or something along those lines—probably not a full-blown boot, though, and definitely not, say, an Ugg boot.”
Good point. Finally, a WTXF reporter suggests the perfect item to shoplift with their sizable sticky fingers.
“The world’s biggest pants unveiled see the XXXXXXXXXL underwear.”
“Women wearing those, boy, they could do some big time shoplifting. They could probably shoplift a car off Kerbeck Cadillac’s shop.”
One bright point: prison jump suits are free. The two now face felony shoplifting charges. (pause) We’re still thinking about those boots… (SOC)
