LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A mother is accused of using her child to help her steal from a grocery store.

According to an arrest warrant, Jocelyn Mask, 37, would remove cans of formula from the shelves of the Kroger on South 2nd Street. Mask would hand them to her 6-year-old daughter who would conceal them in a bag.
