Girl makes fake baby out of bra and toy dog to shoplift at supermarket

A girl used a pram with a cuddly toy and a bra disguised as a baby in a bizarre effort to fool security staff.

Saffron Curtiss-McGinty stashed sweets, candles and an electric toothbrush underneath the pram the fake child was in, hoping that she would not get caught, The Lad Bible reports. 

Unfortunately for her, she was spotted on closed-circuit television (CCTV).

Her creative work in turning the toy dog into her baby was then dismantled.

The 18-year-old was arrested for theft and assault, having slapped the store manager following her plan falling apart.

She admitted to one more count of theft, as it turned out she had stolen from the same store the day before.
