Woman Uses Dress as Cover-Up to Steal RadioShack Merchandise

Surveillance video shows a woman used her long dress as a coverup to smuggle several items from a RadioShack in Florida back in February.

"You actually see the woman place not one, not two, not even three, but at least seven boxes inside her dress," a WTVJ reporter said.

Detectives believe the woman had some type of bag under her dress to carry the computer parts.

WPLG reports the woman walked away with more than $1,100 worth of merchandise and it took RadioShack employees several hours to notice.

The rip off was featured as 'The Ugly' on "Fox & Friends" 'The Good, The Bad and The Ugly' segment.

But it's not the first time a long dress has been used as a thief's cover-up.

In November, a woman in Costa Rica slipped a TV between her legs and walked out of a store in a matter of seconds.

The surveillance video went viral and The Costa Rican Times asked a good question: "Are people trying to recognize this woman or just amazed by the skill in which she placed the flat screen television under her dress and escaped the scene."

It's unclear whether the woman in Costa Rica was ever caught, but as for the incident in Florida, officials say the surveillance video will go a long way to help identify the suspects.

"The images are super clear so anyone who knows this couple can see this video and you're going to know who they are," Broward Sheriff's Office spokeswoman, Dani Moschella told WTVJ.

Officials believe the woman in Florida has done this before.
