Video goes viral of alleged St. Louis Ikea shoplifter with frying pan in her pants

A live Facebook video of a woman apparently trying to shoplift a frying pan from the Ikea store here by jamming it down the seat of her pants has gone viral with more than 1.4 million views since it was posted Dec. 30.

The video shows a woman arguing and struggling with two Ikea loss-prevention officers outside the store, near Forest Park and Vandeventer avenues. The outline of the pan is clearly visible through her leggings, with its handle sticking out the waistband

The video shows the Ikea workers detaining Coleman in the parking lot before the pan finally falls from her pants to the pavement. While a male worker holds Coleman’s arms behind her back, a female employee tells Coleman several times to let go of her shirt.

Several times during the video, Coleman claims she is pregnant. The guards led her back to the store before police arrived.

Coleman was released Dec. 31 after posting 10 percent of her $15,000 bail. She could not be reached for comment Friday. Her pre-trial release form says she has no previous criminal history.
