Clarke, Ga., police arrested a Hartwell, Ga., man caught stealing used tires from a local Sears store.
And riding shotgun during the thefts was the man’s 11-year-old daughter.
The man claimed he had the permission of the store to take the used tires. Police found the man taking the tires from a cargo truck in the parking lot and loading them into his vehicle.
Police checked with the Sears store manager, who said the man’s claims were untrue.
Along with the 15 tires from Sears that he had already loaded, police also found a number of tires that likely came from other businesses.
After booking the man, police had to contact the girl’s mother, who came to pick her up.
