Heads Up, Mom December 24, 2009

From USA Today:

When Diane Lyons of Carrollton, Ohio, caught her 6-year-old daughter shoplifting a $3.11 pack of tattoo stickers, she did what any mother would do.

She called police, who took little Shiane away.

Lyons then asked about collecting a $30 reward for turning in shoplifters, the Associated Press tells us.

“I don’t think I went too far,” Lyons, 31, said in a phone interview. “You’ve got to catch them when they first start if they do something wrong.”

AP says Police Chief Ronald Yeager went to the Discount Drug Mart last week and took the girl to the station before releasing her to her mother.

And the reward?

Lyons didn’t follow up because she felt bad about asking for it.

“People think that I set her up or something to get the reward,” Lyons said.

She doesn’t believe she overreacted; she just wanted to teach her daughter a lesson.

“I don’t think Shiane would do it again, I really don’t, because of all that I did,” Lyons said.


Guess what little Shiane will shoplift next?

Yep. A .38 caliber Police Special. With one bullet.
