Toy store rip-off isn't kids stuff

MIAMI (AP) - August 14, 2012

Authorities in Miami charge a mother and her adult son with stealing more than $2 million in toys from Toys R Us stores nationwide.

Broward County Sheriff's deputies say Michael and Margaret Pollara would look for cheap toys in big boxes.

Authorities say the pair would empty the boxes before getting to the cash register and fill them with expensive toys like Lego sets.

Investigators say the Pollaras were tracked for two months, thanks in part to the Toys R Us rewards card they used.
