Police: Woman uses kids to steal $100K worth of jewelry

Police downstate are looking for a woman who is accused of using two small children to steal more than $100,000 worth of jewelry.


Police say surveillance video shows Geneshia Grey and two children taking the jewelry last month.

The boy and girl, about 6 and 8-years-old, swiped at least 69 boxes of jewelry from a store in Granite City.

Most of the boxes contained 14-carat gold rings worth $600 a piece.

Police are not saying how Grey is related to the kids.

She was charged in court Wednesday but authorities say she is missing.
