CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- (WSOC) -- Police have arrested a woman who they said used her children to sell cookies across Charlotte and then kept the money for herself.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg police arrested Nikeyshi Carzell on Wednesday.
Investigators told Channel 9 that she used her children to target homes on Kirkgard Trail, Berewick Commons Parkway and Bald Eagle Drive.
The children would go door-to-door, claiming they were selling cookies, cookie dough, pretzels, popcorn and pizza for fundraisers, but officers said Carzell would keep the cash.
Police received several complaints about the children over the last few months.
