Walmart shoplifter grassed up by his 6-year-old daughter
A man accused of shoplifting from Walmart was undone by his 6-year-old daughter, say police.
It all went wrong when Scott Birk’s daughter learnt to talk. Now age 6, the girl has grassed up her dad to the cops.
Mr Birk, 31, of New Berlin, Wisconsin, was captured on CCTV at a Walmart store allegedly breaking into a jewellery case and stealings earrings, which he put on. The store’s security guard says he heard Birk’s “6-year-old daughter told him several times to stop breaking into the jewellery case”.
Perhaps to appease the child, Birk then “put sets of toys that he had in his cart into his shorts”.
But that failed. Because when police asked Birk how she’d gotten to the store, and he’d said that owing to a driving ban he’d walked, Birk Junior pointed to their car and ratted dad out.
Birk has been charged with theft.
His daughter wil most likely get a toy sherrif’s badge:
