A 46-year-old woman has pleaded guilty to stealing a mink coat from a Twin Cities store and then hiding the coat in her underwear, the Associated Press reported.

Stephanie Moreland snatched a $6,500 fur coat -- then hid it between her legs in a pair of barely-there underwear for three days while she was in jail, according to Bloomington, Minn. police back in January.

A store employee said Moreland was acting suspiciously. When the worker confronted the 270-pound Moreland, she lifted up her skirt and exposed her rear end, but no sign of the jacket.

Police arrested her when they found a coat hanger in her car, but no outerwear.

It was three days later in jail that she retrieved the contraband from her customized knickers and handed the mink coat over to cops.

Moreland pleaded guilty to felony theft of property on June 20, WCOD TV reported, and will be sentenced on Aug. 8.
