Mother and daughter charged for post office robbery

Mother and daughter charged for post office robbery

A mother-daughter duo in Kentucky faces charges after their recent family bonding exercise; investigators say they allegedly robbed a post office three times.

Surveillance footage broadcasted by local news station WLWT5 shows two women with a pry bar, apparently breaking into a post office in Corinth, Ky. They reportedly stole money and drugs, which are sometimes sent to prescription holders through the mail.

Police told the news outlet the post office had been robbed twice before, which lead authorities to install a security camera. They said the same two women were suspects for all of the break-ins.

Police charged 18-year-old Katelyn Courtney and her mother, 35-year-old Melissa Courtney, in connection with the crime, according to WLWT5.

Katelyn was supposed to return to high school this fall, but she might not be able to share the story of her summer of crime at parties if she's sentenced to jail time.

A woman in Providence, R.I., told police she was robbed by another mother-daughter team of women she knew while walking down the street earlier in July, according to WPRI news. She said the women stopped, knocked her down, stole her iPhone and then drove away in a black car.

I guess it isn't likely these daughters will end up grounded.
