NAPLES, Fla., July 9 (UPI) -- Police in Florida said a mother-son shoplifting team was arrested after the mother left her debit card behind at the Kmart they targeted.

Collier County sheriff's deputies said Cory Dalton, 19, and Lori Lynn Larocque, 38, were caught shoplifting $71 in merchandise from the Naples Kmart at about 3 p.m. June 24 and while a loss prevention officer was escorting them to an office Dalton shouted, "Run, ma, run," and the pair fled the store, the Naples Daily News reported Friday.

Deputies said Larocque and Dalton fled in a Cadillac but left behind Larocque's debit card and $13 worth of items they had legally purchased.

Investigators said they located the pair Tuesday at Dalton's home and they were both arrested and charged with petty theft. Dalton also had an arrest warrant for failure to appear in court on a marijuana possession charge, authorities said.
