ST. LOUIS -- A woman was so desperate to get away after being caught shoplifting that she left more than just the merchandise behind.

Video showed her struggling with security at a Kmart in St. Louis.

She got away by spraying mace, but left her 4-year-old son in the shopping cart.

Police tracked her down and arrested her at home, and the boy was staying with other relatives.
