A female shoplifter was caught on camera stashing groceries in her underwear at a supermarket in southern Russia.

The bizarre incident took place on Oct. 5 and the CCTV footage of it was released by a store security employee Monday.

The video begins with the unidentified woman picking up things from a shelf above the freezer. She then lifts up her grey dress and fills up her undergarment with the items. The woman then walks up to the refrigerator, opens the door and shoves some more items inside her undergarments. She then wanders around the store and continues to do the same. Another shopper can be seen in the video. However, he doesn't seem suspicious.

"Please make such subhumans public. There are no words for this behavior, only shame. Normal people work, but why work if it is better to hide sausages and soap in your panties," the security staff said while releasing the video Monday, Daily Mail reported.

An investigation into the incident was ongoing.

The incident comes months after an elderly shoplifter killed himself after threatening Florida supermarket employees with a knife. Police arrived at the supermarket after receiving information that a man, later identified as 60-year-old Randy Dull, was threatening the employees with a knife. By the time the officers arrived, the man had already fled the scene.

A search was initiated for the man and after a while, he was found a few lanes away. Upon being confronted by the officers, the man "began inflicting life-threatening wounds on himself." Paramedics arrived at the scene and rushed him to a nearby hospital where he was declared brought dead by the doctors. Officials said that when confronted, the man "ignored commands from officers to drop the knife" and began hurting himself in front of them.
