(CBS) ROSEVILLE, Calif. - A couple is accused of creating a distraction to allow their 12-year-old daughter to steal a watch from a store in Roseville, Calif., reports CBS Sacramento.

Anthony Miller and Terry Ziko face charges that include burglary and child endangerment, and police say they are also under investigation for allegedly using a false ID to buy a vehicle, reports the station.

Police say the incident began at the Hugo Boss store in the Roseville Galleria.

Roseville Police spokeswoman Dee Dee Gunther says Miller's 12-year-old daughter is believed to have stolen a $250 watch.

"While some of the family members distracted the clerk, it freed up the child to reach into the display case and take the watch," Gunther said, according to the station.

Police caught up with the couple a few days later and place them both under arrest. It was then that authorities reportedly found the couple to be in possession of false identification and subsequently learned that they had used that false ID to buy a truck, Gunther said.
