It's a family affair: Mom forces teen daughter, toddler to help her steal, police say


A Minneapolis woman was craving a new wardrobe so badly that she forced her two daughters to help her steal from downtown Minneapolis department stores, police say. That's one way to teach really great family values.

Michelle Jordan allegedly used her 14-year-old and 3-year-old daughters as accomplices. She had been stealing hats, jewelry, and jeans from Macy's and Sak's Fifth Avenue, according to KSTP.

The 14-year-old would stand as the lookout and she would stuff items in the 3-year-old's stroller. Then the 14-year-old would push the stroller out of the store, police said.

Security cameras show her stealing almost $1,000 worth of items at Sak's alone.
