I live with three kids who think nothing of helping themselves to whatever is in the fridge or pantry. No big deal...Mom and Dad have tons of extra cash and grocery stores just give stuff away, right?

Tell us if this mom has the right idea.

According to a police report filed with the Charlotte - Mecklenburg police department, an irate mother called to report that her Pop - Tarts had been stolen. She also gave up the identity of the thief.

It was her juvenile son, and he was placed under juvenile arrest. The young man faces misdemeanor larceny charges.
