A day after releasing video of a shocking shoplifting incident in Clearwater, police have arrested a couple and taken away their kids.
Investigators released video Tuesday of Julio Angel Torres, 31, and Janet M. Soto, 37, using their children to allegedly commit crimes at a Hooters and Ron Jon Surf Shop in Clearwater Beach.
In one of the videos, you could see Soto use a 2-year-old in a stroller to steal items. Police say after releasing the video, someone saw it on the news and called authorities.
That helped investigators track down the pair, who are from Kissimmee.
Inside the couple's vehicle police say they found cash, two purses with stolen IDs, and credit cards. Police say they took those purses from two people at the Hooters.
Torres was also violating probation, police said.
