ORLANDO, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35) - A mom from Orlando was hauled off to jail after a trip to Walmart. Orlando Police say 34-year-old Shanteria Baker took her eight kids to Walmart and had all of the children help her shoplift.
Investigators say Baker's children range in age from four to 18 years. Police say Walmart security "observed Baker along with each child make several selections of women's clothing, women's accessories, cosmetics and grocery items."
The kids placed the items into one cart while baker began to separate out the food items, according to her arrest affidavit. It also says that Baker had her kids pick out watches, take them out of their packaging and place the watches into backpacks they'd picked out. Baker paid for the backpacks, but not the watches according to her arrest affidavit.
OPD says Baker paid for some items, but when she and her family were stopped by store security on their way out the door, OPD says the family had over $1,000 worth of merchandise they never paid for.
Baker has been charged with one count of grand theft third degree and seven counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor. If Baker bonds out of jail, the judge ordered her to not contact her oldest child, the 18 year old.

Oh, Shanteria, where did it all go wrong?
Your mother and I are so disappointed.
Shanteria . . . no, no . . . let me guess . . .
It’s common practice for shop-lifters to have been trained by their mothers. That’s why store should not go easy on these thieves. The children ought to see them hauled off to jail. Perhaps they would be moved to follow a different line of work.
She’s named after a Sublime song?
Wonder what their father thought? , , , or should I say fodders
Mom? She may be a mother but she ain’t no Mom...
Well, she’s grappling with poverty and for all.we know , suffers based on the legacy of Slavery........
With all the cameras nowadays, it’s harder and harder to get away with it.
It’s fun to watch the insurance fraud videos. In one video, a guy is on camera buying a hot dog, then another camera catches him, in a deserted aisle, setting it on the floor. Then the same camera captures his wife carefully smearing it into the floor with her foot and laying down, and then screaming in pain.
I’m totally shocked that a welfare rat would do such a thing.
Eight children and how many fathers?
My brother knew a young guy that would get 2 hotdogs at QuikTrip and eat one before he got to the cash register.
“Eight children and how many fathers?”
There was a white dude who ran a roadside bbq shack who’d shoplift at the grocery store. He’d put hams and briskets in his pants.
How do these people steal for generations and not get caught? I so much as thought about stealing a candy bar, I’d be thrown in jail.
Eliminates the need for picture, you know.
