Mother, 2 teen girls wanted for felony shoplifting

OVERLAND PARK, KS (KCTV) -

A mother and her two daughters are wanted for stealing more than $1,500 in merchandise from an Overland Park retail store.

The merchandise was stolen about 8:30 p.m. Sept. 10 from the T.J. Maxx at 9030 Metcalf Avenue. Police on Thursday asked for the public's help in identifying the three.

The woman and the two girls entered the store. The woman asked questions about the store's layaway plan. The store doesn't have a layaway plan, and the woman created a scene.

As woman argued with store employees, the teen girls wheeled out of the store a cart filled with merchandise. They also grabbed purses on their way out the door.

Even if the three weren't in cahoots, Overland Park Police Department Officer Gary Mason said the woman didn't force the girls to return the merchandise to the store once she got into the car and saw the stolen goods.

"It's not a good example for any adult to show any type of minor," Mason said.

Because of the amount of merchandise stolen, police are seeking them for felony theft charges.

The woman and teens left in a white 1997 or 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee with gold rims and gold trim. The Kansas license plate started with "IG."

The teens were described as 15 to 16 years old. One girl was wearing a pink shirt while the other was wearing a purple shirt.

The woman was in her 30s and had black hair. She was 5 feet 4 inches tall and weighed about 145 pounds.

All three were African Americans.

If you have any information, call Overland Park police at 913-344-8729.
