Edmond, OK - (NBC) Oklahoma police say two women arrested for shoplifting used their bodies to conceal the goods.

Edmond police authorities say TJ Maxx loss prevention officers found the duo stuffing items under their belly fat and breasts.

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

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

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

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