We had another unfortunate incident at this same store. My nine year old son spent all his money on candy and Garbage Pail Kid cards. He went and my 13 year old went shopping on Sunday May 9th to buy a mother's day gift. My son did not want to be the only one without a gift so he stole a pair of a box of my favorite candy.
I am am very angry about this. They called me at home instead of letting him off. I mean it is mother's day, there is no need to call me at home, they could have just given him a warning. My husband was very angry about this. He refused to go to the store because he was afraid he would do something he regretted and get arrested. So on mother's day I had to go to the store and pick up my sons. My 13 year old had nothing to do with this, though they did not arrest him they detained him when he did nothing wrong saying they had to wait for me to come. I am angry at the employees, had they told my 13 year old son to stick with my nine year old son he would not have been tempted to steal in the first place. Instead my 13 year old son and my 9 year old son were separated. I am sure a few employees saw my nine year old son alone and no one said nothing to him, or my 13 year old about sticking together. My son could have been kidnapped and no one warned my 13 year old about the dangers. Don't get me wrong. My son was punished for what he did. I don't know the whole store but apparently he is saying his older brother told him to steal refusing to lend his money, and my 13 year old is saying that never happened.
Don't know who is telling the truth. I asked several employees if they knew the truth, and none of them were paying attention to these children so I will never know the truth till they are adults and say "mom remember the time when..."
