EDMOND, OK — Two women are arrested for shoplifting and police say they used their bodies to conceal the goods. Edmond police authorities say it was at the Edmond TJ Maxx that loss prevention officers found the duo stuffing items under their belly fat and breasts.

They say they took four pair of boots, three pair of jeans, a wallet and gloves; $2,600 worth of store merchandise.

Ailene Brown, 28, and 37-year-old Shmeco Thomas were arrested for shoplifting and are facing felony charges.

Officer James Hamm said, “These two were actually concealing them in areas of their body where excess skin was, under their chest area and armpits.”

Police say Brown also had a knife in her purse they say she used to cut security tags in the store.

    The poor woman’s name is Schmeco, you can’t really blame her for not turning out so well. Do her friends call her Schmecky?

      Ellie – I posted this story on Tom’s fb page. His reaction?

      “You have to admit that the idea is pretty hot, though. Get those stolen goods right in there, ladies. Mmmmm.”
