Woman Nabbed With 42-Inch TV Under Her Skirt
The Local ^ | 10 Aug 2012

Posted on 08/12/2012 1:46:51 PM PDT by nickcarraway

A woman was arrested in Oslo on Thursday after walking out of a shopping centre with a 42-inch flat screen television between her legs.

The woman, who was accompanied by a male companion, wandered out of the Elkjøp shopping centre in the Skøyen area of Oslo with the substantial item under her long flowing skirt.

A witness alarmed the police after spotting the cumbersome couple leaving the shopping centre at around 8pm on Thursday.

The woman was able to carry the widescreen television clasped between her legs and well hidden under her long skirt, to a nearby bus stop. The police however took up the chase and the pair were apprehended as their bus headed out of the city centre.

Oslo police reported that the incident was all in a day's work.

"It is not unusual that thieves put bits and bobs under their skirts of large sweaters," Tor Grøttom at Oslo police said.

Widescreen girl.

It harkens back to the Octomom thread from a couple of hours ago.

Years go some woman tried to walk out of a grocery store with large frozen turkey between her legs. She got caught when a store clerk caught up with her, made conversation, and walked her back and forth in front of the store till the turkey dropped.

Ah hum?
I just bought a 42 in screened TV, the box is big and really awkward.
Was she really tall and carried it vertically?
Was she fat and waddled anyway?
The fact she got the TV to the bus (an unusual get away vehicle) is amazing and clever.
I’d almost be willing to give her a TV.

I didn’t know that they grew them that large in Norway.
The last time I was there I was amazed at how beautiful and statuesque most Norwegian women were/are. If I stayed there much longer, I might have come home with a new bride. Maybe things are changing there.

"Probably a muzzie woman "

Criminals are using the Burka in Europe. It is perfect they can walk into a store with a full face covering and walk out and no one even questions them.

There is pictures in on the net of a man using the Burka for robing a store.

I worked in a computer-related chain store many years ago. We had a guy stuff a large laptop down the front of his pants and try to walk out with a huge, obvious rectangular bulge in his clothing.

In spite of the fact that pursuing a shoplifter was a firing offense, pretty much the whole staff went out the door after him. It looked like a scene from the movie ‘It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad, World’. We were getting robbed blind, and we were all tired of it.

One of the salesmen used to run track, and he ran the guy down several blocks away, tackled him, and brought the miscreant and the laptop back to the store and held the guy for the cops.

Perhaps. But, when I was there in the early 90’s, all I saw were beautiful, tall, lovely Nordic goddesses. I pretty much felt as if I had been plucked up from Athens and delivered to Mount Olympus to view Aphrodite in all her splendor. Well, that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but not much of one.

Reminds me of the story of the father and daughter emmigrants on the Oregon trail who were robbed by outlaws along the trail.

After the robbers had departed, the father was bemoaning the loss of everything, including their horse and buggy; to which the daughter replied, as delicately and fatidiously as she could that the robbers hadn’t gotten everything. She told him that she had hidden their money and jewelry up under her skirts and underwear, in her “private place.”

To which the father burst out with, “By gaw, it’s a shame we didn’t have your mother with us. She could have saved the horse and buggy!”

Yes more likely a Muslim woman. A very safe Vegas bet it was a muzzie

Native Norwegian women in Oslo rarely wear long dresses...long enough to hid a big TV.

Oslo is infested w Muslims, and they are a major problem with crime in the city. When I was there in February and got off the train station I thought I was in the Middle East

The US State Dept even issued a warning earlier this year for Americans to not walk alone in Oslo at night.

We arrested a guy that Shoplifted a Family Pack of Steaks. He had shoved them down the front of his pants as he ran from the store.
As we chased him he pulled a raw steak out and started eating it. When we tackled him the steak got covered in dirt and other crap. He still continued to try and eat the steak.
We had to store that in evidence for a couple of months until the case went to court.

Needless to say the store did not want the steaks back. /;8^)

“The US State Dept even issued a warning earlier this year for Americans to not walk alone in Oslo at night.”

Hmmm.....I missed that memo. The Elkjop that was robbed is about 300m from where I live in the relatively Muslim-free west side of Oslo. Now the east and northeast sides are an entirely different story. Grønland is a Muslim ghetto.

I forgot that it could also have been a ‘Romafolk’ woman or gypsy they have been a big problem here this summer (as they are every summer) but they don’t usually take the bus.
