LAKEWOOD, Ohio, Oct. 14 (UPI) -- An Ohio teenager was forced by a parent to apologize at a record store where police said he and a friend allegedly stole a machine that makes guitar picks.

Police said the two teenage boys allegedly stole the machine from the store in Lakewood around 8 p.m. Saturday and officers stopped one of the teens when he was later seen walking with his brother, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported Monday.

The boy's mother took him back to the store, where he apologized to workers and his mother paid for the machine.

The store chose not to press charges, but both teens were banned from the business.
