ROSEVILLE (CBS13) — A couple is accused of creating a distraction to allow their 12-year-old daughter to steal a watch from a Roseville Galleria store.
Anthony Leo Miller and Terry Ziko face charges that include burglary and child endangerment, and Roseville Police say they are also under investigation for allegedly using a false ID to buy a vehicle.
CBS13 cameras tried to get a comment from the couple, but we were instead greeted by a man who said the couple didn’t want to talk.
“If you guys put me on the news, I’ll have my lawyer get in touch with you guys and sue you guys,” said the unidentified greeter.
Roseville Police say it started at the Hugo Boss store in the Roseville Galleria.
“They believed a family that came into the store frequently had committed shoplifting,” said Roseville Police spokeswoman Dee Dee Gunther.
Gunther says Ziko and Miller didn’t grab the $250 watch, it was Miller’s 12-year-old daughter.
“While some of the family members distracted the clerk, it freed up the child to reach into the display case and take the watch,” Gunther said.
Police would catch up with the couple a few days later and place them both under arrest, but it wasn’t over.
“They found them to be in possession of false identification, and learned that they had used that false ID to buy a truck from [the Roseville Auto Mall],” Gunther said.
