“This is unreal that this could happen to a family like ours,” said Nicole Leszczynski KHON in Hawaii.
The output became a nightmare occurred on Wednesday, while the family was shopping at a local Safeway.
“We’ve come a long way to the store and I felt weak, dizzy, as if I needed to eat something so we decided to take some sandwiches and eat them while we were shopping,” Leszczynski said news station.
Leszczynski, who is 30 weeks pregnant, her husband, Marcin and Zophia and daughter bought $ 50 in grocery stores – but they forgot two chicken salad sandwiches.

Instead, the mother told KHON that the Safeway manager called the police. Were taken to the main police station in Honolulu, where they were booked for theft of fourth grade. Then Zophia was arrested by the Child Protective Services.
