Two Jacksonville, Florida Area Mothers Arrested for Allegedly Using Children to Assist Their Shoplifting

Two mothers were recently arrested in Clay County, Florida for the crime of shoplifting for allegedly using their children to hide clothing, according to an article on News4jax.com. In a prior post, I discussed the various signs police and loss prevention officers look for to detect shoplifters. One of those signs is entering the store with something that can be used to conceal and steal merchandise. Common examples include loose clothing, large shopping bags and strollers, but anything that can be used to conceal items can bring a shopper to the attention of the authorities.
