A mother is sitting in jail for an outrageous crime caught on camera.  She's accused of having a child steal a wallet from behind a store counter.

19 Action News first to report this and tips from viewers led to an arrest. Police arrested of Alicia Robinson.

Strongsville police made the bust. A woman nudged a little boy. He crawled under a store counter. Stole a clerk's wallet. Then police say two women used the stolen credit cards.

Investigators say one of the women is Alicia Robinson, also known as Alicia Baker.

Police say she's the mother of the boys in the video, and the one stealing the wallet is 12. The other is 8.

We're told Robinson lives in Mayfield Heights. The other woman?

Police say that's Robinson's sister. Investigators still looking for her.

Robinson goes to court Thursday morning. Police say she's wanted in other towns around Northeast Ohio.

Investigators have taken a look at whether that little boy thief will get charged. So far just mom.
