A Maple, WI woman appeared in court last week on the charges that she brought her children with her to steal a TV, video games, food, and cards containing money.  Kharissa Anne Anderson allegedly brought her  two kids age 8 and 13 along to assist with the theft.

The crime that took place at Mission Covenant Church in Poplar was caught on surveillance video.  They were able to identify one of the children which led the police to her residence, where Anderson was hiding inside of a mattress.  A shotgun was also found in the home, which is illegal for a felon to posses.  She faces charges for that as well as contributing to childhood delinquency.

This isn't her first time in trouble with the law.  Back in 2004 she was convicted of felony burglary.  She also is facing numerous fraud, drug, bail jumping, traffic violations, and more.
