(CINCINNATI) --

Update: Christine Ruther appeared in court on Friday, where her bond was set for $7,500.

Also, she may not have any unsupervised contact with her daughter.

Previously:

Police in Cincinnati say they followed a trail of candy and candy wrappers and arrested four people following a break-in at a downtown candy store.

Among the four was a woman who has been charged with child endangering.

Police say 19-year-old Christine Ruther of suburban Green Township had her 7-week-old daughter with her when she and three other people broke into Peter Minges & Son candy store early Thursday and took about $400 in candy.

According to court documents, Ruther used the baby carriage to hide the candy.

The group was arrested a few blocks away when police caught up with them by following their trail. Also arrested were Rebecca Gamble, 18, Terrance Ware, 18 and Dwight Reed, 22. Police say Ware used a rock to break out the window and crawl in. He also admitted to a break in on April 4 at the same store. Gamble acted as the lookout, police say.

All four adults have been charged with breaking and entering. Reed is also charged with failure to register.
