MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A woman who pleaded guilty to stealing a fur coat and concealing it inside her underwear has been sentenced to nearly two years in prison.

Stephanie Moreland, 46, will spend two-thirds of her 23-month sentence in jail and the other third on supervised release, according to the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office.

She will get credit for the time she has already served.

Moreland must also pay $3,500 in restitution.

Moreland was arrested on New Year’s Eve after the Alaskan Fur Company reported a short mink coat was stolen by a woman who had been in the store and acting suspiciously.

Moreland pleaded guilty to one count of felony theft of property. Police say she hid the mink coat in her underwear for three days while being questioned by police in jail.

The coat was valued at $6,500.

  7. BMW says:

    She must wear some big old bloomers to be able to fit a fur coat in.

  8. Sweet cheeks? says:

    Down at the jail house they called her Tons ‘o Fun, Snookie, and Cheeks for Chaps.

    Oh, and one guard is still missing. Maybe they better check her one more time to see if they can find Rufus.

      No, dummy. It’s SWEAT Cheeks.

  9. Using your pole, not mine. says:

    I can see how she got away with it. Would YOU want to “check her out?”

    what a stupid judge,this is why america has become a joke , we let weirdos like this judge in positions where we need common sense, instead we get some fat a-s dressed up in a robe like a clown ruining a lady ‘s life , she’s already down on her luck, why not offer her some help instead, the loser on the bench getting taxpayer dollars for being dumb should pay for the fur out of his inflated salary.

    1. D D D says:

      Blame the judge? The lady put herself in that position! C’mon man!

    2. yo' crazy bo' says:

      Oh paaalease, kenny. Whachya been sniffin’ there bro’? Sweat cheeks? Da judge dun da ryte thang there, dudley. Go sleep it off.

    3. Yum says:

      Hey Kenny drop her a love letter at the prison, offering to help big Bertha out. I bet ya she is single.

  11. Linda Berglund says:

    Leaving the woman’s shape out of it, I must say I am surprised that no one searched her and found the fur coat. And too, I wouldn’t want the coat – before or after she had it stuffed in her panties. I believe the judge made a good call – but cannot imagine it turning the woman’s life around. But I would not have wanted him to just let her off.

  12. too funny says:

    Kenny, Is this your woman? How do you know she was down on her luck? Even if she was what good is a fur coat going to be…oh ya she can probably pawn it if doesn’t stink too bad from being up her butt!!!

  13. allan says:

    If she wasn’t going to fence the coat, wouldn’t she look great in it? What a fat, ugly, nasty looking woman. She belongs in prison. And who was the idiot that blames the judge. Are you insane?

  14. Buckwheat says:

    Is that Aunt Jemima?

    1. Shantreal says:

      Looks more like she ATE Aunt Jemina!!

      1. wheresmypancakes says:

        ….actually, it’s a more resemblance of Mrs. Butterworth!

  15. Deep Thinker says:

    Actually the sentence seems a bit longer than what it normally would be. I’m guessing she has priors. I can understand people making a mistake but then to do it again, she obviously is getting what she deserves.

    1. ickiness says:

      She only has 34 counts listed in Iowa… And of those, only 5 are felonies… And a few other thefts/swindle/burglaries/assaults. No big deal.

  16. Murph says:

    Did x rays find my missing outboard?

    1. Heather says:

      no……but car keys and a couple nice rings

  17. just sayin says:

    That poor coat! Maybe they should Ebay it with a full description of what happened… I’m sure someone would buy it for that. 🙂

  18. RetroDude says:

    Aw c’mon. She was probably just bored waiting for the welfare check and food stamps.

  19. Chilly says:

    Isn’t that Bryant McKinnie?

  20. Linda Berglund says:

    There are so many mean comments here. I laughed when I read the article because on the face of the article it is a ludicrous thing to do. But I am reading mean, cruel and just rude things and do not like it.

  21. Linda Berglund says:

    So Frank you are right up to 10 on the insipid and doltish level. Guess you’ll have to look the words up, though.

    1. schizophrenic psycho says:

      ….just like you did before you posted your comment, as to not incorrectly spell them!…wow, your as transparent as saran wrap!

  22. Lamb Chop says:

    That’s one big pair of Granny Panties!

  23. Bad Bad Bad Girl says:

    How could they tell where the fur coat ended and the…..oh never mind

  24. Soul sistas says:

    I’m guessin’ Linda’s got a hefty set of buns herself. May have spent the night in the clink with the gal, ya think?

  25. Hugh Jorgan says:

    I think I just vomited in my mouth. JAFN…

  26. we says:

    Is that a fur coat in your pants or do you just have a BIG BUTT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  27. Sarah in Outstate MN says:

    How does one conceal a fur coat in one’s underwear? This is confusing to me.

    1. schizophrenic psycho says:

      …let the bikini line grow out for awhile and you’ll understand.

  28. ishy says:

    what a shock for her man when he reached in for sum luvin and pulled out a fur coat!!!

  29. ishy says:

    got to admit, she would have looked hot in that coat…don’t you think?

  30. HooDatIS? says:

    this big fat sperm whale must have had on her granny panties
    what size is she a 99 double extra large
    three days in her drawers? if the mink wasnt dead she killed it?
    they should do an autopsy on the mink and if they find out if was alive before she stuffed it in her panties she should be charged with murder, fat heffer

  31. Stand aside, folks ... way aside. says:

    Think of the methane cloud those buns can produce! Ha, a portable gas chamber.
