Police: Baby on board for robbery   Shocked

By Pete Bosak
BELLEFONTE — A husband and wife team accused of trying to rob a Philipsburg store, then robbing a second store — with their 1-year-old child in tow — before driving to Pittsburgh to buy crack were ordered to stand trial after a hearing that even a veteran prosecutor called bizarre.

“It’s a very unusual case,” said Centre County Assistant District Attorney Steve Sloane. “You can’t write this stuff or make it up. A 1-year-old was taken to an armed robbery and the rest of the family goes along on a crack run.”

Clayton and Stephanie Shaw are accused of attempting to rob the Philipsburg Uni-Mart about 11:50 p.m. Sept. 10. According to the criminal complaint filed by state police, they were sitting around their apartment drinking beer “when the subject of robbing the Uni- Mart came up.”

So they put their three children to bed and headed to the Uni-Mart, state police Trooper Carl Abernethy testified.

Clayton Shaw, driven to the store by his wife in their minivan, rushed into the Uni-Mart with a white shirt over his head and demanded cash, police said.

“Yeah right, Clay,” was the response from the clerk, Shanelle Keith, who knew him and recognized his voice, police said.

Clayton Shaw fled after telling the clerk he was “just joking,” police said.

The couple then went back to their apartment and, when they couldn’t quiet their crying 1-year-old, they formed a new plan, police said.

“They get the baby in the car, and they basically figure, the heck with it, let’s go rob the Minit Mart,” Abernethy testified.

Minit Mart clerk Lori Gorup said the robber told her, “I’m here for the money, (expletive.)” Shaw later told police he brandished a knife during the robbery.

“I thought he was very rude for calling me a (expletive),” Gorup said. “I went to the register and gave him the money. Nothing in that store’s worth my life.”

Clayton Shaw fled with the cash and jumped into the waiting vehicle, which was then pursued by “the whole fire department,” Gorup said. No one at the hearing explained what she meant by that.

“They then returned to their apartment and picked up their other two kids, then drove to Pittsburgh and bought crack cocaine and smoked it,” said state police, relating the couple’s alleged confessions following their arrests.

The Shaws face charges including robbery, theft, criminal attempted theft and receiving stolen property, Jordan ruled.

But the court drama wasn’t over.

Sloane asked Jordan to revoke Stephanie Shaw’s bail.

He played a recorded conversation between Stephanie Shaw and her husband, who is in jail and unable to post bail, in which she told her husband they should abandon their children with the county’s Children and Youth Services and flee to North Carolina.

On the tape, Clayton Shaw can be heard rejecting his wife’s pleas to run. She said she expressed hope his bail would be reduced Wednesday and said they were unable to regain custody of the children, so they should flee from prosecution.

Aren't these two real winners?    Lock 'em up.  Never let them be near the children again. Ever.
