PITTSBURGH (AP) — Police say it's a very naughty list, sometimes checked twice.

A New York couple and a teen are in custody charged with shoplifting thousands of dollars in toys in a three-state spree that ended in western Pennsylvania.

Authorities say the thieves used a list to keep track of the 91 stores they hit for merchandise — sometimes marking a store with two check marks after hitting it twice.

Ross Township police say they found a rented van filled with stolen merchandise on November 16 after arresting 40-year-old Theresa Lynn Warner, her 39-year-old fiance Christopher Frances Dimaio and her 17-year-old son. All three are from Little Falls, N.Y.

Investigators say they also recovered a list of stores in New York, Pennsylvania and Ohio where the trio swiped merchandise.

All three are in custody. It wasn't clear if they had attorneys.
