back to article Mink coat thief conceals booty down knickers

A Minnesota woman who swiped a mink coat and stuffed it down her knickers managed to pull off probably the greatest merkin stunt in criminal history by concealing her substantial booty from cops for a full three days. Stephanie Moreland, 46, was cuffed on New Year's Eve after swiping the $6,500 short coat from the Alaskan Fur …

    I wonder what the coat's value is now? Does it need a clean? What needs cleaning off it?

      It has been reclassified as a minge coat.

          Beaver collar surely. Maybe a trench coat.

      Somewhere on the internets...

      ...there is a website that specialises in 'worn' fur coats. I for one am not going to look for it.

    We don't want the mink back ...

    ... thank you very much.

    Shop-soiled is not enough!

    Would wear a coat after it had been... I don't even want to think about it!

    Burn that Coat!

    A muff within a muff. I am not going deeper.

      I believe you meant to say "I am not *diving* any deeper."

      4/10 must try harder.

      Having looked at the mugshot

      I don't think going deeper is going to make any difference.

    Just... yuck.

    So, some US plod visually checked the rear end of the miscreant and decided that a front end check wasn't necessary.

    Looking at the mug shot, I can understand why...

    A fur coat is hardly a small, compact item, just how big is this woman if she could hide it between her thighs for 3 days?

    Actually, I don't want to know, I've just eaten.

    Mines the fragrant smelling one.

      Don't forget

      Most likely the mink coat was for a size zero. I doubt she stole it for herself after all.

      1. Suburban Inmate


        Maybe she was going to nick another one, for her other arm.

    So dissapointing.

    I was desperately hoping for the perp to be called 'Mary Hinge'.

    All fur coat and no knickers

    Surprised you missed the obvious heading... or is it too northern?

    1. Elmer Phud


      Certainly not.

      I know of it even in London - though it may have travelled down with those who failed to look on Street View for the 'paved with gold' stuff first.

    2. John Dougald McCallum

      Yeah's too Northern.

    Should have put it over her head.

    Dear god...what a mug!

    An expensive coat....

    One of the properties of this type of coat is that they appear big, they're fluffy and warm but they can be compacted to almost nothing (and they're lightweight). The little people don't usually get to experience this, their mock fur (nylon) stays bulky (and the static build up would have been 'interesting').

    Amazing transmogrification!!

    It went in a mink coat, and came out a beaver coat!!

    Leaving as soon as I confirm that my coat has not been "stored" in a similar manner!!

    Just thinking about the mechanics of it is making me go blind...

    Paris coz she hides it well

    Can't find a coat

    Did the police continue their search?

    If this 'lady' can hide a mink coat for three days then what else has she got tucked away?

    Lost pygmy tribes!?

      If I can find my keys...

      ...we can both drive out of here!

    Took to her heels?

    Look at the size of that walrus - she can't exactly have been keeping up with Usain Bolt. So how fat were the mall cops if they couldn't catch her? Hell, she's lucky not to have had a coronary from the unexpected exercise.

    So, it was a high-value snatch?

    On the whole, yes!

    I guess that's what they mean by "cunningly hidden".

    An officer did a cavity search but hasn't been seen since.
