A mother and daughter were arrested Wednesday night for stealing several bottles of alcohol from a Safeway, according to police.
Police say Regina Pearl Wilson, 67, and her daughter Shonta Rene Jones, 41, took Jones’ 11-year-old daughter to a Safeway store in the Linda Mar Shopping Center and stole more than $300 worth of booze.
Officers saw the women fleeing northbound on state Highway 1 in a silver sedan and pulled them over.
Wilson and Jones were both given criminal citations for theft. Wilson was on probation for possessing stolen property and also had an outstanding warrant for prior thefts. She was arrested and booked into the San Mateo County Jail.
Jones also had an outstanding warrant for narcotics violations, according to Pacifica Police. She was released.
Officers bought Jones’ 11-year-old daughter a fruit cup while her mother was detained.
