Neb. Mom Told School to Call Cops on Daughter Who Stole Fries


OMAHA, Neb. --

KETV NewsWatch 7 is learning more about a girl who is accused of stealing french fries from a school cafeteria last week.

Millard South High School called police over the lunch hour on April 20. The assistant principal told authorities the 17-year-old girl had taken one serving of fries from the cafeteria without paying for them.

The girl’s mom told KETV NewsWatch 7 that her daughter had no criminal issues until recently, when she was caught on suspicion of shoplifting at a Kmart store. The girl was ticketed for that incident, according to her mother.

When school officials called the girl’s mom after the french fry incident, she said she told them to call police.

“It’s not what she took, but that she took something,” the girl’s mother said.

Police said the student was cited on a misdemeanor charge of shoplifting.
