Two sisters from Akron were arrested on Monday after police say they were caught with hundreds of dollars worth of Lego toys allegedly shoplifted from Walmart stores in Boardman and Cortland while their children were with them.
Twenty-five-year-old Julia Serrano and her 27-year-old sister Vanessa Serrona were scheduled to appear in Boardman Court on Tuesday to answer charges of theft and child endangering.
The two were arrested Monday evening at the Boardman Walmart after store security reported that a store surveillance camera recorded the two women, accompanied by their two small children, removed an entire shelf of Legos and placed them in a trash can they carried from the household department.
According to the police report, the women then took a large box of Legos from a display and emptied it into their shopping cart, which they covered with their jackets and went to the restroom. Police say the women poured the Legos into handbags they had brought into the store, then bought two candy bars and a balloon at the self-checkout… WFMJ21 News
