PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. - Port St. Lucie police arrested a Richmond Hill, New York woman on charges of grand theft and contributing to the delinquency of a minor after police say she used her 13-year-old grandson to help shoplift at a local Wal-Mart.
According to Port St. Lucie police, Bisai Indrawatie and her grandson entered the Wal-Mart Superstore located at 1850 Gatlin Boulevard around 3:40 p.m. Thursday and were seen by store security concealing women's clothing and electronics in a suitcase.
Store security told officers that Indrawaite had selected clothing and placed it in her suitcase while her grandson picked up a computer mouse and mouse pad that Indrawatie also placed in her suitcase.
Before leaving, Indrawatie was seen by security in the school supply aisle attempting to conceal more items into plastic Wal-Mart bags that she had in her tote, according to investigators.
Police say Indrawatie then left the store with her grandson with more than $887 dollars worth of clothing, food and school supplies.
Due to the age of Indrawatie’s grandson, police determined the boy was acting under the direction of his grandmother. He was released to an adult relative without facing any criminal charges.
