BALTIMORE (AP) — Baltimore police say an officer has been suspended after her daughter, who worked as a supermarket cashier, allegedly charged her mother about $100 for more than $400 in groceries.

Police say Darlene Early, 41, was charged after a security guard at the Food Depot on Belair Road noticed her daughter, 18-year-old Ciara Anderson, was incorrectly entering prices. A police report said the total bill should have been $401.86 and Early was charged $101.28.

Police say Early has been charged with attempted theft and Anderson has been charged with conspiracy to commit theft. Both charges are misdemeanors.

Police say Early, who joined the force in 1990, was assigned to a detective unit. She has been suspended and an internal affairs investigation is pending.
