Police have released surveillance video of the moment a father appeared to shoplift and his four-year-old daughter walked out of a store with a doll, before they were held at gunpoint by officers.
Dravon Ames, 22, and Iesha Harper, 24, were held at gunpoint on May 27. They were followed home by Phoenix Police Department officers who believed they had shoplifted from a Family Dollar store.
Their four-year-old daughter had taken a $1 doll without their knowledge. Police released the surveillance video that shows the girl with the doll in her hands.
She shows it to a woman inside the store, but the adult is seen signaling for the girl to put the doll down before she walks outside.
After the woman walked out, the girl is seen waiting for two other adults before she walks out of the store with the doll in her hands.
Another clip from the video shows the girl's father, who has been identified as Ames, stealing a pair of underwear from a package, according to police. Ames is seen grabbing the package and appearing to open it while squatting in the store.
