BUTLER, Pa. —
A mother is facing several charges after police said she used her 9-year-old children to help commit a crime.
Authorities said Christine Petrarulo brought her two sons with her into a Butler Township convenience store and asked if one of them could use the bathroom.
According to police, when the clerk went to unlock the bathroom, Petrarulo took money from the register and hid it in her other child’s pocket.
When Petrarulo took the cash and ran, leaving her son behind, the convenience store manager, Greg Stutz, said he held the child and called police.
Stutz said he’s been in business for 20 some years and that the things people do never cease to amaze him.
Petrarulo is charged with endangering the welfare of children, corruption of minors and theft.
