Shoplifting on Camera: Kids called in to do dirty work in family shoplifting ring...
A family, including two children, steal hundreds of dollars in merchandise from a Texas store.
Boerne Police say three adults and two children, between the ages of 4 and 10, were caught stealing Nintendo WII gaming systems and jewelry from the Wal-Mart in Boerne.
Police say the family hit first in April, then came back again this month.
Police say, the adults let one of the small children do the dirty work by pushing the merchandise out the front door.
Detective Ovoid Flores said, "it's pretty disgusting, ethically they're showing a child it's ok to steal."
Police say because the child walked the merchandise out of the store, she would be the one guilty of theft, not the adults.
However, those adults could face charges of Criminal Solicitation of a Minor.
