(Scroll down for video) A teacher of Florida, was arrested after she used a 3-year-old girl as her partner in crime.
Parents and students were shocked when Amanda Jo Hammon, resigned from her job as a high school teacher when she was arrested for a string of burglaries.
Investigators said that Hammon and her boyfriend stole the goods from Walmart, on four different occasions by slipping the items into the backpack of Hammon’s 3-year-old daughter.
Pasco County Police said that Hammon was arrested after she allegedly stole $1,700 worth of items by filling her daughter’s pink backpack and then made her daughter walk out the store with the stolen goods.
The 30-year-old woman had taught at the Wesley Chapel’s John Long Middle School, for about 10 years before she abruptly resigned.
Officers were called to Walmart, after surveillance video showed the couple in action. Officers arrested Hammon along with her boyfriend, Jason Dorman.
After her arrest, Hammon told police that she was planning to sell the stolen good so she has money to buy drugs.
