JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

A woman and her daughter wound up in jail together after police say they caught them using a baby stroller to help them shoplift.

Jonesboro police arrested 59-year-old Deborah L. Gee and 33-year-old Jamie Elizabeth Gee, both of Brookland, on suspicion theft of $5,000 or less but greater than $1,000.

The women are accused of stealing $1,155.74 worth of items from Dillard’s, 3000 E. Highland.

According to the initial incident report, a loss prevention worker witnessed the women concealing items from the store in a baby stroller.

The women told the arresting officer they “were intending to sell the items they stole to get money to pay for a bill that was due this week.”

They also told Officer Rayonica Thomas they “attempted to put the items back where they belong because they knew they would be caught,” the report stated.

Both women were taken to the Craighead County Detention Center to await a probable cause hearing.

Two children who were with the women at the time of their arrest were turned over to a family member.
