WALDORF, Md. (WUSA9) -- A mother and her children were arrested recently for shoplifiting and possession of marijuana, according to Charles County Sheriff's Office authorities.

At 6:54 p.m. Saturday, officers responded to Mall Circle for the report of three people shoplifting. According to a caller, the store security officer had caught one person but the other suspects had fled in a white Chevrolet Impala.
