A Chicago teenager was arrested for joining his mom for a robbery to celebrate her birthday. Police say 17-year-old Elmer Taylor went to the counter demanding money from the clerk at a gas station convenience store in Greenfield, Wisconsin, Wednesday. He said his mother was waiting outside in a getaway car.

Angelia Kelly's other three children were with her -- a 13-month-old girl, 10-year-old boy and 14-year-old boy.

Taylor and his mom were quickly caught and taken into custody.

The teenager was visiting from Chicago for her birthday.
