Mother, daughter arrested together for theft, during questioning deputy tells one 'I was not born yesterday'

This appears to be a case of the family that steals together stays together.

A mother and daughter from Marathon each was charged Tuesday with theft for allegedly stealing two JBL Clip portable speakers and a Mophie Juice Pack power pack with a combined value of $200. It happened at the Sprint/Radio Shack store in the Bealls shopping center at U.S. 1 and 109th Street.

Deputy Joel Slough from the Monroe County Sheriff's Office arrested Shannon Carroll, 26, and Nadine Carroll, 54, in the late afternoon incident.

Slough and Deputy Rosa DiGiovanni were called to the store by management who saw the alleged theft. The Carrolls were found in a nail salon in the shopping center. The older Carroll reportedly told Slough she had a speaker that she bought a few days earlier. When Slough told her there are cameras in the store, she claimed to have a bad memory.

"I advised her that I was not born yesterday," Slough wrote in his report.

That's when she produced one speaker and "implicated her daughter." During that conversation, the second speaker and the power pack were also found in Nadine's purse, the deputy wrote.

Both were arrested and taken to jail, where deputies reportedly found in Shannon's bra an illegally obtained Alprazolam prescription pill so she was also charged with the felonies of smuggling drugs into jail and possessing a controlled substance without a prescription.
