St. Paul Couple Takes Holiday ‘Stuffing’ To A New Level

By Susie Jones, NewsRadio 830 WCCO

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The couple wasn’t stuffing a turkey or even a holiday stocking but instead Woodbury Police say they were stuffing oversized pants with merchandise from the Kohl’s in the Woodbury Village Shopping Center.

Sgt. Curt Zacharias says it’s not unusual for shoplifters to resort to extreme measures when committing their crime.

“Altered pants, though we don’t endure it that often, is not necessarily that unusual either, especially for those folks that do engage in this kind of behavior quite often,” he said.

The two were arrested and face felony charges because police say shoplifting is usually a misdemeanor, but because they used equipment — the pants — the charges were increased to a felony.

    “Altered pants, although we don’t endure it that often, is not that necessarily that unseal either especially for those folks that do engage in that type of behavior quite often.” He said.

    What on earth was the sergeant trying to communicate in this quotation??? Or was the interpretation by the reporter the issue here? Either way, this statement makes no sense whatsoever!
