CORTLAND, N.Y. (AP) » State police say they’re looking for three men believed to have stolen $10,000 worth of powdered baby formula from several central New York Walmart stores.
Security camera images show the suspects in the baby product aisle. In one photo, a man has a shopping cart brimming with cans of Enfamil powder. Troopers said formula was stolen at stores in Cortland, Johnson City and Cicero.
Baby formula theft has been a problem at stores nationwide for years because it’s a high price item that’s always in demand. Some retailers keep it locked up.
Thieves typically sell the formula at flea markets or at online sites like Craigslist and eBay.
