LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Two women have been arrested after police say they were caught shoplifting more than $2,400 worth of designer sunglasses.
Police say it happened at the Gaddie Eye Centers on Shelbyville Road, near Arterburn Drive.
According to an arrest report, 32-year-old Heather Kessel of Crestwood, Ky., along with her mother, 56-year-old Dorothy McClain of LaGrange, Ky., were seen by store associates placing 10 designer sunglasses in their purses without paying for them.
The sunglasses were worth a total of $2,491, according to an arrest report.
Police say the incident was captured on security cameras, and McClain was using her three grandchildren -- ages 10, 8 and 3 -- to create a commotion so store employees would be distracted while they committed the thefts.
Police arrested Kessel and McClain at the scene and charged them with theft, according to an arrest report.
