Police say a 5-year-old made it out of the store with a full shopping cart but other children were stopped from leaving with another full cart. Twenty-six-year-old Chiquita Jordan was arrested on misdemeanor charges of theft and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

The children ranged in age from 2 to 11.

Court documents do not list an attorney for Jordan, and a telephone listing for her could not immediately be found. She could face up to two years in prison if convicted.
