This woman will NOT be earning any Mother of the Year awards anytime soon!
23-year-old mother Michelle Calderon attempted to steal nearly $300 worth of candy and cough drops from a Manhattan drug store, and if that wasn't bad enough already, she tried to use her 1-year-old son in the heist!
Cops say the bad to the bone momma and her accomplice Raymond Lebron tried to stuff $179 worth of Halls cough drops, $102 worth of Dentyne and Wrigley’s gum, and $15 worth of Tic Tacs in her little boys stroller while their buddy Darnell Johnson was on lookout!
When the trio tried to walk out the store, they were confronted by a worker, and that's when things escalated!
Raymond struck the worker in the face while Michelle attempted to use her son's stroller as a battering ram, and the three crooks left the scene!
However, they forgot one important thing: THE BABY!!!
The wannabe robbers were eventually tracked down and charged with robbery, abandonment of a child, and endangering the welfare of a child!
Luckily, the little one ended up being A-OK and hopefully he'll be under the care of some slightly more responsible adults!
