Mom Stole Clothes to Pay for Son's Prom Shoes: Cops

The woman stole just under 100 items of clothing with the intention of re-selling them to pay for her son's shoes.

A 43-year-old Chicago woman faces retail theft charges after Orland Park police say she made off with $900 in women's wear, to help pay for her son's prom. 

The woman told police she planned to sell the 93 pieces of clothing from the Victoria Secret 'Pink' store to buy her 19-year-old son shoes for prom, Chicago Tribune reports.

The woman is charged with one count of felony retail theft and one count of possession of an anti-theft-detection device, which is a misdemeanor. She was given a July 28 court date and was released on $10,000 bond.

Hey sparkle , have you ever heard of thou shalt not steal? Dig all you want. Wrong is wrong. As parents one should set the example. That seems to be the problem now days.

Ok so your better? By bashing? You have never done anything wring in your life at all? I call bullshit!

Sparkle, I think you're (not your) having a little more than milk with your cookies. If that is what you got out of that, then you either need to read it again or maybe take a class on cognitive resonance. I will "bash" anyone who CHOOSES TO STEAL! It is wrong, and no amount of putting sparkly things on it will change that. The commandments (and the LAW!) say Thou Shalt Not Steal - oh, except from a retail store, and oh, except if your kid wants shoes for a dance that he should PAY FOR!!!
