    Family shoplifted millions in mom's big black dress, feds say
    By Michael Pearson, CNN

    (CNN) -- How do you swipe $7 million in toys, electronics and other stuff without anyone noticing?

    Apparently, in Mom's flowing black dress, according to federal prosecutors who have charged three members of an Illinois family with transporting stolen property across state lines.

    They'd been at it for a decade, prosecutors said.

    Prosecutors say Lela Bogdanov stuffed merchandise in the blue lining of her big black dress, then walked out of the stores -- often with family members staging a diversion to draw the attention of employees....




    Geez, how big is this woman? :eek:

    Apparently big enough to hide stolen items. I don't even want to know where those items had to be in order to get out of the store. :eek:

    Day-Yum! That's a lot of stuff (or stuffing).

    A dress made like s magician's jacket. Where there's a will there's a way.
