Gotta Watch: Weird stuff hidden in pants

It’s not uncommon for shoplifters to hide merchandise by stuffing it into their pants. You’ve Gotta Watch how far some thieves take this tactic to the extreme.

Fur coat follies – Police say one woman tried to steal a fur coat by stuffing it into her underwear. She was arrested for shoplifting, but she was in jail for three days before she told cops that she still had the coat on her. In this video, not only do you see her stuff the coat in her panties, but you also see her pull it out for police... three days later!

Snakes in a pant leg – An Arizona man stole thousands of dollars worth of snakes from a pet store. Watch him put the slitherers in his shorts and casually walk out of the store. How many snakes fit in a standard pair of shorts? Find out 33 seconds into the video.

Shake that Tail Feather – You have to see this to believe it. Two men tried to smuggle Asian songbirds into the country. They were caught because someone saw tail feathers sticking out of their pant legs. How did they keep the birds from making a getaway? It's all in the socks.

    I thought a strip search was made of arresed suspected crimnals, before issuing jail clothing and putting the person in a cell? I guess I was wrong.

    @justathought: I thought so, too, and what are the odds that the store wants its coat back? Ewwwww!

      The trouble was that they had a hard time figuring out what was fur coat and what was attached fur.

    Are they sure it was a stolen fur coat and not the clippings she failed to wash off after last night's shave?

    People wouldn't need to steal things if the right wing thugs in Washington would give them more welfare money. All of you mindless tea partyers are making jokes about these poor people who didn't do anything wrong, except steal things from greedy rich people.

      Patton,
      You should really change your name.
      What you are aking for is socialism or communism. How many Americans died fight these things.

      George....you are ridiculous with your analogy. They stole fur coats and rare snakes. Not food or living necessities. So we taxpayers should take the burden of more welfare money so some of them can afford a fur coat? You are nuts.

    I remember hearing once that Robin Williams was once strip searched by store detectives. They thought he was stealing a sweater. It turned out it was just his chest hair, so they released him.

  12. Social Security disabilty fraud

    Follow that gal home and she's probably one of the "43% of all African- American's sole source of income is welfare"-Mr. Precious, president of the NAACP. Of course their are more whites spongeing off of welfare. (duh) But the news shows you the tiny part of the problem.

    Social security and military entytlement fraud cost US over 500 billion dollars per year. 3/4ths of what we call our National Defense Budget is spent on military entytlements. Over 70 million Americans claim social security. So even if just a small percentage are fraudulent, the total theft amounts to hundreds of billions of dollars.

    The FBI does in fact investigate these military entytlement fraud cases. The avg. investigation lasts about 2 years before they finally arrest you. If you are a fraud, you may already have been found out. It's time for you to come clean with America...say you are sorry and start paying back what you have been stealing all these years. Otherwise, it's just a matter of time before you find yourself slaveing at a corporate prison.

    This warning applies to those in the medical field who prescribe drugs for profit rather than for health. Your days are numbered, as are those who have become addicted to pharmaceuticals that are nothing more than expensive versions of commonly abused street drugs. Oxycodone is in fact synthetic heroin. Procaine is synthetic cocaine. Xanax is synthetic quaalude. Even Barbara Bush admitted to being addicted to xanax for years, so you are no better than her.

      I'm not sure I'm going to believe someone who's spelling and grammar are so atrocious. May want to stick with the burger flipping job. You're not going to get a job teaching English or as a pharmacist.

      Doooshy, it really wasn't that bad. Calling people out for poor grammar and spelling on a comment board is a bit childish.
