Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - OBITUARIES -

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.
