Police arrested a woman accused of using her own daughter to steal cash from a Chinese restaurant in Camden, New Jersey.
Police say Lynntia Stratton, 28, entered a Chinese restaurant on the 1200 block of Chase Street back on August 6 and told her 7-year-old daughter to go behind the counter and take cash. The mother and daughter then left the restaurant, investigators said.
Police released surveillance video of the incident on Friday which led to tips identifying Stratton as the suspect, investigators said. She was arrested Tuesday and charged with endangering the welfare of children, employing a juvenile in the commission of a crime, burglary and theft.
