ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A 28-year-old man is facing charges after police say he used his 7-year-old daughter as a barrier while shoplifting in Albuquerque.

KOB-TV in Albuquerque reports (https://goo.gl/vJL8Of) that Eduardo Orellana was arrested Saturday after authorities say he tried to steal a drill at a Home Depot.

When confronted by a store employee, police say Orellana threw his daughter in front of the worker as he tried to escape.

He is charged shoplifting over $250 and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

It was not known if he had an attorney who could comment on the allegations.
