Delaware State police have arrested a Pennsylvania woman who allegedly used her 10-and-12 year-old daughters to steal from a store. Police say 27-year-old Jennifer Ramos of West Grove, Pa., was at a Kohl's Department store near Stanton with her daughters Tuesday.

Officers were called to the store for reports of shoplifting.

Police say the woman had her daughters take items and put them in a shopping cart. The three then convened in a dressing room where $700 worth of items were stashed in the mother's purse or about her body.

Ramos is charged with shoplifting and endangering the welfare of her children.

The two girls are in a family member's custody.
