Nbc.com reports that a Philadelphia mother fled a Macy’s department store with over $1,000 of merchandise. The mother, 27-year-old Mahogany Terry, brought her daughter with her while she shoplifted. Terry went into a dressing room, and was then apprehended by security guards who caught her taking the items. The mother and her daughter were escorted to a room in the building, and the guards handcuffed the mother’s hands to a bench. Terry freed herself and fled the store, leaving her daughter behind. She was later picked up by authorities and charged with retail theft and child endangerment. Her daughter was taken to relatives after the Department of Human Services took her in briefly.
