Those must have been some plus-sized panties.
A Minnesota woman pleaded guilty this week to stealing a mink coat and keeping it stashed in her underwear for three days while cops questioned her about the theft.
Stephanie Moreland, 46, was arrested on New Year's Eve after an employee at Alaskan Fur Company in Bloomington, Minn., reported that she'd swiped a $6,500 mink coat.
Cops who searched her car found the coat's hanger - but no fur - and hauled her into jail on suspicion of theft.
Detectives grilled Moreland for three days over the New Year's holiday, giving her pat down and metal detector tests, but she insisted she had already sold the coat, cops said.
After investigators threatened to throw her in a Hennepin County Jail, Moreland hiked up her dress and pulled the mink coat from her underwear, Minnesota's WCCO television reported.
Cops were impressed with her craftiness.
"She had modified her underwear," Bloomington Police Commander Mark Stehlik said. "She actually cut the rear of the underwear out so that from the back it appeared she was not wearing underwear and then stuffed it down the front."
Moreland pleaded guilty on Monday to one count of felony theft of property. She's set to be sentenced on Aug. 8.
