ORLANDO, Fla., July 30 (UPI) -- Authorities in Florida said a couple accused in a string of car burglaries had their 6-year-old son with them when caught in the act.

The Osceola County Sheriff's Office said deputies received a tip that Paul Sherman and Nafeesa Robinson of Orlando were behind a string of car burglaries at restaurants and other businesses in Osceola, Orange and Lake counties, the Orlando Sun reported Tuesday.

Investigators said undercover detectives watched as Sherman and Robinson broke into a vehicle Sunday at the Target in Kissimmee.

The couple, who were found to be carrying $650 in fake bills, had their 6-year-old son with them at the time of the alleged break-in, the sheriff's office said.

The Department of Children and Families was contacted and the boy was turned over to a family member, deputies said.

Sherman and Robinson's home was searched and deputies recovered stolen merchandise and seized more counterfeit money, the sheriff's office said.
