Woman accused of using children to steal from store

RICE LAKE, Wis. (WEAU)-- A Spooner woman is accused of using her children to steal hundreds of dollars in merchandise from a Rice Lake store.

The criminal complaint says on Monday, 43-year-old Aimee Paffel went into a Kohl's dressing room with several items. It says her 13 and 15 year-old daughters also brought her items to the room. Paffel then put the merchandise in a bag, and had one of her daughters walk outside with the bag. A Kohl's employee stopped the child and called police.

The items were worth about $600 dollars. The complaint says Paffel admitted to stealing from the store before.
