Baby-formula robbery ring
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.
