A Springhouse woman has been arrested on two counts of retail theft and two counts of corruption of minors after police say she had her daughters help take more than $480 worth of items from the Kohl's Department Store in Warminster.
Ivy Harper, 44, has been confined to Bucks County prison, unable to post ten percent bond on $10,000 bail after Warminster police arrested her on Aug. 8 after a store security guard detained her.
According to the affidavit, the guard saw Harper and her daughters, ages 16 and 11 years old, walk through the store and pick out several items for sale.
Harper and her daughters selected jeans, pants, knit tops and other merchandise, then headed to the shoe department to stuff the clothing into their handbags, according to the statement.
The guard watched as the they walked past the cash registers and exited the store, police say. They voluntarily went back into the store after the guard confronted them, the criminal complaint says.
