Police say a shoplifting scheme by a South Jersey mother and her son has ended in two arrests.

58-year-old Donna Hall and 30-year-old Nicholas Hall were taken into custody at a Walmart store in Egg Harbor Township early Tuesday.

Employees say Hall claimed she couldn't find her granddaughter.

But officers quickly determined the missing child did not exist.

They say Hall made up the story to distract employees so her son could shoplift.
