Bad IKEA Shoplifter Tried To Smuggle A Large Frying Pan In Her Pants

Shoulda worn hammer pants.

By Eric Shorey

I'm sure we all went through a conspicuous kleptomania phase at some point in our lives, but a shoplifter at an IKEA in St. Louis never really got the hang of the whole stealthy stealing thing. Employees found the woman with a frying pan tucked indiscreetly into the back of her pants.

Reports indicate that the woman had also attempted to steal bedsheets in a bag when she was spotted with the cookwear. She struggled vociferously against police and loss prevention officers, even biting and scratching the people attempting to arraign her. She faces two misdemeanors for theft and one charge of assault.

A video of the incident has already amassed over a million views on Facebook.
