Shoplifters Use Baby To Hide Stolen Goods

Baby along for a browse through Walmart?
Well, sure.
Baby in a shopping cart?
Yes, that too.
Baby as a decoy . . . . ?
And then there's a new spin: Using a baby to hide stolen merchandise.
Police in Cherry Hill NJ say that a couple of local Walmart shoppers were caught with nearly $250 in stolen merchandise hidden under an infant.
The two alleged thieves were charged with shoplifting and use of a juvenile to commit a criminal offense.
So, if you've got something to hide think twice about stashing it under the baby. That's a ploy that just plain stinks.
