Two women were arrested over the weekend for stealing nearly $150 worth of beer from local grocery stores and attempting to take even more, police said.

"They were pretty desperate for beer and liquor," said Lt. Chris Jacobsen of the Lodi Police Department. "I don't know if they were selling it, having a party or just stocking up."

    It seems to me that it would be appropriate for these women to also be charged with "three" counts of child endangerment instead of just one. These women are both charged with three counts of burglary and three counts of conspiracy to commit a felony, but only "one" count of child engagement. Was the child not in danger at all three burglaries and attempted burglaries? This doesn't seem right to me.

    Are you kidding me, the police commit more serious crimes when they are on duty!

    I feel sorry for the kids of these two women. They are the true victims of this sad incident. Hopefully, they will be taken and raised by family who will teach them right from wrong.

    It's a good thing they didn't try to steal from Tokay Liquors! Now you're really talking child endangerment.

    Great job Katherine Fisher and everyone that helped to stop these two!! By stopping these women, they could have prevented an injury to that poor child they were dragging around with them. I think there should be a count of child endangerment for each store they robbed or attempted to rob.

    I am at a loss as to explain what thought process it takes to make this seem like a good idea. How do people justify stealing anything that doesn't belong to them? And to do it with an infant in tow? Stupidity at it's finest.
