Parents Arrested for Shoplifting

Posted June 9th, 2014 @ 7:03am

A couple was arrested over the weekend for shoplifting, with additional charges filed because they had their small children with them.

Peggy and Jerry Daugherty were observed paying for a few items that were in the main part of the cart, but did not pay for the items under the ad and the sunglasses.

The Daugherty's admitted to a police officer to stealing the items and taking the tags off the items and placing them on the shelf while their young children were with them. Items were also found in the pockets of their five and six-year-old children, but the couple claims they didn't know how the items got there.

The couple was charged with Theft and Child Endangering.
