It seems like there is nothing that can be done to sway a shoplifter’s mission, even if they are wearing skin tight Nike athletic pants.
Sierra Coleman,28, tried stealing a frying pan from a Ikea store, but seems the odds were against her. Maybe it is because she tried to shove the pot in the back of her workout pants, with the pot’s handle sticking out in plain view. Not a very sneaky way to go about it!
Coleman was obviously stealing, but that didn’t stop her from putting up a fight. When Ikea security attempted to restrain her, she fought back, yelled and even scratched and bit the employees.
“You don’t want to make it worse … especially, you know, you got these people’s stuff in your pants,” said the woman who captured the moment on film. The woman filming appears to be a friend of Coleman’s as she seems to be capturing the moment for Coleman to use for her side of the case.
Coleman goes on to say that they way they are restraining her is illegal because she is pregnant. and that the security man’s badge wasn’t exposed and the theft of the pan is only a misdemeanor. It seems like someone did their homework and maybe even planned for this.
Eventually the woman takes the pot out of her workout pants and puts it on the ground, before going into the store with the two Ikea employees to wait for the police to arrive.
After the lengthy battle, Coleman faces two misdemeanors…one for assault and one for theft, according to the Circuit Attorney of the City of St. Louis.
It didn’t take long for the web to stat sharing this video and soon Sierra Coleman became quite a celeb in the world of criminals. Let’s just hope that future criminals don’t try to use their stretch pants as a method for stealing large items.
