A mother was caught on camera allegedly using her child to steal on Monday at the Low Price shop.

Avinesh from Low Price, says the incident happened on 17/05/2021 around 3pm at Low Price Freshwota 1 outlet.

He says the lady used her son to help steal 2 bottles of Tequilla coffee (alcohol).

Avinesh also says that using children to assist in stealing or of any form of illegal activity is totally unacceptable.

He believes that using the child to assist in stealing or any crime is a sign of an emotional abuse and an abuse of the trust that the child has on their caregiver.

This can have a negative impact on the child’s ability to grow up and differentiate between a right and a wrong.
