Couple Uses Seven Kids to Steal Electronics From Toys 'R' Us

Palm Beach Police have a released a video of nine suspects, seven of them minors, in the burglary of the Toys 'R' Us located in the 20000 block of South State Road 7 in Boca Raton.

On the video, it appears a family of nine -- one adult male, one adult female, and seven minor children -- enter the store and head to the electronics department. At the instruction of their parents, the children can be seen on camera climbing under cabinets, trying to disconnect tablets from their security cables. The children were successful in freeing two, a blue Tabeo E2 and a Polaroid 10.1 tablet, which the parents then concealed and walked out with.

Police are looking for one male suspect, described as black, about 40 years old, with black hair, brown eyes, and weighing about 230 pounds. The female suspect is black, about 40, with black hair, brown eyes, and weighing 180 pounds. The seven children involved range from 3 to 13 years old.
