HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- A man and woman are facing charges after they brought a child along while they were allegedly shoplifting in Short Pump on Sunday.

Officers said Sherita Johnson and Johnathan Lomax put items in a shopping cart at the Target on Broad Street and tried to leave the store without paying.

When police caught up with them in the parking lot, officers said that is when they realized the two also stole from a nearby Walmart.

Both have been charged with grand larceny and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
