GRANITE CITY, IL – A day of shopping can be a family affair. But when Geneshia Grey went into an Illinois jewelry store, shopping was the last thing on her mind.

Authorities say Geneshia went into the store with her 6 and 8-year-old children. She distracted the clerk with questions, and then sent her kids to do her dirty work.

The kids made off with nearly 70 boxes of jewelry. Police say they were able to track down about $10,000 worth of it, but believe Geneshia has more. They’re still looking for her.

But it didn’t stop us from nabbing this mother as our Dumbass of the Day!
