Oklahoma City police: Woman used child to allegedly steal merchandise from store

OKLAHOMA CITY – Authorities in Oklahoma City are investigating a theft of hundreds of dollars worth of items, and they say the crime involves a young child.

Late last month, officers were called to a dollar store along S.W. 29th St. following a theft.

Oklahoma City police say a mother distracted the clerk long enough for her young son to run out of the front door with $400 worth of merchandise.

Once the child got everything inside the vehicle, investigators allege the mother ran after him and took off.
