A shoplifting couple who appeared on Dr. Phil is now under investigation.
Wired PR News – A couple who admitted to shoplifting on Dr. Phil’s nationally syndicated television show has landed in hot water. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), Matthew and Laura Eaton, who discussed their shoplifting spree on Dr. Phil last year are now being investigated by federal agents. The couple reportedly admitted to stealing $100,000 worth of goods and selling them on eBay.
As noted by the AP, the couple’s children accompanied them while they shoplifted, as demonstrated by a video showcasing their crimes. The Eatons were reportedly investigated prior to their TV appearance, for stealing toys, which they later admitted to selling online and making $3,500 in one week.
The two have yet to be charged, but they have reportedly retained an attorney with the United Defense Group.
