Talk about a great idea gone wrong. They could have gone away with it had they been smarter. But then again I do not condone theft. It is illegal and a crime. 

MIAMI (AP) — A mother and son stole more than $2 million inexpensive toys by stashing them inside the boxes of cheaper products that they bought at Toys R Us stores across the U.S.,authorities say.

Broward County Sheriff‘s deputies say Michael and Margaret Pollara then sold the big-ticket items online, according to an arrest affidavit. They were arrested Thursday and face a bevy of theft charges. Both remain in jail, and it’s not clear if either has an attorney.
Michael and Margaret Pollara visited 139 Toys R Us in 27 states, including California, Hawaii and New York, buying nearly $7,000 worth of small-ticket items to fuel their scam, according to the affidavit. Authorities were able to track Michael Pollara‘s purchases across the country because he used a Toys R Us rewards card for all of his purchases.
