Hemera/Thinkstock(LONDON) — A 31-year-old woman was arrested in Norway late last week for walking out of an electronics store with a 42-inch TV between her legs.

The Daily Mail
reports the woman and her boyfriend were both arrested as she was observed hobbling to a bus stop after secreting the $3,000 TV under her skirt.

The brazen-but-not-too-bright crime has earned the unidentified suspect the moniker “thunder thighs” by a Norwegian radio station, and has sparked dares of other women attempting the same feat — though cops say no copycat crimes have been reported.
