A North Platte woman, her grandmother and her three children have all been charged after they were busted stealing from a North Platte store.

According to Officer Rodney Brown, North Platte Police responded to the report of several shoplifters at Shopko at around 4:15 p.m. on March 30th.

Officers learned that store personnel had observed several people stuffing clothing into bags and exiting the store.

The suspects, identified as 37-year-old Tina Edington and her three children, ages 14, 12 and 11, allegedly entered a white Suburban operated by Edington’s grandmother, 81-year old Goldene Roueche, and attempted to leave the property.

Officers arrived and conducted a traffic stop on the Suburban.

An investigation and statements from store staff revealed that the family placed several items of clothing in various bags, then the children would carry them out to the vehicle where Roueche would retrieve them and place them in the Suburban.  Brown said store surveillance video captured the crime and confirmed that the family worked together to perpetrate the crime, to include the 14-year-old serving as a lookout.

When all was said and done, Edington was charged with theft by shoplifting, contributing to the delinquency of a minor and misdemeanor child abuse.  Roueche and the three children were all cited for theft by shoplifting and released.

Brown said the items, valued at $330.00, were all recovered.

      Ralph Mouth and everyone else who posted, I am glad to see you all have never done anything wrong in your life and that all your family members are all Saints. I am Tina’s mother and Goldene is my mother, When ever printed this better get their facts straight on what happened. Mom was not involved in this other than it was her vechile used to get around in. Why Ralph mouth are you slandering my folks and their business? When dad and my uncle were alive did they turn you down from working there or did you work there and get fired for drug use or coming to work drunk? You weren’t man enough to comfront the when they were alive so you go after them when they have passed! Gutless wonder you are. So to all of you find out the really story before you judge someone cause KARMA will come back to haunt you.

    Just an FYI My grandmother had NOTHING to do with what Tina did. Tina did what she did and unfortunately took others down too. Now If anyone has anything bad to say about my grandparents come to me! And I will set everyone straight. I love my nieces and nephews and hope that this will stop them from ever doing it again.

    If your going to post something about someone than stop being a coward and use your real name or are you afraid to. This Scott person who wrote this needs to get his facts right before printing anything and may moms attorney needs to speak with him about his post. I’m real sure that all that have posted have never in their life done something stupid and all their family members are saints, well brovo for all. When did you all become judge and jury? God is the one they will have to answer to and don’t believe all that you read is true til the truth comes out. It is all hear say. Shame on you all for judging.

    Sounds to me like the whole family was involved. The poor kids that were involved. Why would you subject your kids to this? It’s bad enough that the grown ups were stealing but having the children help is pathetic. It’s time that the adults finally pay for what they have done. What a great picture of the mom!!! It looks like she is strung out.
