SALEM, N.H. (AP) - Police say a Massachusetts mother is facing new charges alleging she stole merchandise from a New Hampshire department store shortly after she was arraigned on prior shoplifting charges.

Thirty-three-year-old Adelaida Jordan of Roxbury, Massachusetts, was charged Monday with willful concealment, endangering the welfare of a child and other offenses.

Police say she went straight to the Kohl’s store in Salem with her 8-year-old son and 18-year-old niece following her hearing.

Video reportedly shows Jordan directing her son to walk out of the store with a cart full of items. Police say the group also removed items from packaging and placed them in backpacks in the fitting room.

A phone number for Jordan could not be found Wednesday. It was unclear whether she has an attorney.


This story has been corrected to show that the incident happened in Salem, New Hampshire, not Massachusetts.
