ORLAND PARK, Ill., April 10 (UPI) -- When an Illinois girl looks back on her childhood, she probably won’t be too fond of the time that her mother tried to get her to take the rap for shoplifting.

A security guard working at the Sephora in the Orland Square Mall allegedly spotted Amani Ibrahim stuffing eyeliner and other products into a into a shopping bag and prompting her 12-year-old daughter to snatch items as well.

As Ibrahim attempted to leave the store with the girl and two other children, the guard got in their way and wouldn’t let them leave.

Ibrahim reportedly told a police officer that came to the store that the shoplifting spree was her daughter’s idea. "Amani advised me it was her daughter ... who committed the retail theft and not her," the officer said, the Orland Park Patch reported.

The children were driven to the Orland Park Police Department, and Ibrahim was taken into custody. She was charged with a felony after police discovered that she had six previous theft convictions.
