Baby-for­mula rob­bery ring

New York Post - - NEWS -

Three men stole $10,000 in pow­dered baby for­mula from up­state Wal­mart stores, State Po­lice said Satur­day.

The thieves were cap­tured on se­cu­rity video fill­ing shop­ping carts with cans of En­famil at stores in Cort­land, John­son City and Cicero, troop­ers said.

Baby for­mula has become a ma­jor theft prob­lem for re­tail­ers na­tion­wide be­cause it’s a high-priced item that’s al­ways in de­mand. Thieves typ­i­cally sell the for­mula at flea mar­kets or through online sites like Craigslist and eBay.
