An Indianapolis woman faces a theft charge for allegedly coaxing her 5-year-old daughter into stealing a woman's purse at a restaurant.
According to a probable cause affidavit, a 24-year-old woman admitted asking her daughter to steal the purse Feb. 14 at a Chuck E. Cheese restaurant.
The woman allegedly told officers she pointed out the purse she wanted her daughter to take and urged her to "Do it for Mommy" when the victim wasn't looking.
An arrest warrant was issued Thursday for the woman, who faces charges of theft and contributing to delinquency of a minor.
Her 27-year-old boyfriend faces theft and assisting a criminal charges. Police said the woman's daughter brought the boyfriend the purse after taking it from a booth.
