Woman Steals Money From 10-Year-Old’s Purse
A woman turned herself into the authorities after a surveillance tape showing her allegedly taking $13 from a 10-year-old girl went viral.
On Aug. 11, the young girl went into a beauty supply store in Shreveport, La., to shop for her grandmother, who was sitting in the car, KETK-TV reported.
As she placed her money on the counter, another woman eating an ice cream cone, later identified as Tanika Stephenson, approached the cashier and purchased something. While she was waiting for her change, the surveillance camera apparently caught her on tape slipping the little girl’s money into her purse before she slipped out of the store, according to KSLA-TV.
The local police posted the surveillance tape on its YouTube page. The video quickly collected approximately 3,700 hits.
