Police: Parents Go On Shoplifting Crime Spree With 7 Children

BOCA RATON, Fla. (CBS Tampa) – Local authorities are searching for a large family that, together, went on a shoplifting spree at a local Toys “R” Us.

CBS affiliate WPEC-12 is reporting that a mother and father took their seven children – all of whom were between the ages of 3 and 13 – to the area toy store on the evening of Oct. 28.

Security cameras caught the family making its way to the part of the store where tablets are displayed.

Police hypothesized to the station that two of the children were told by their parents to disable the security devices on the tablets.

The children were reportedly successful in removing two security devices, as the parents then took the two tablets off of the shelves before walking out of the store, all seven children in tow.

Police said to WPEC-12 that the stolen property is worth over $300, and asked that anyone with information reach out to Palm Beach County Crime Stoppers at (800) 458-8477.
