Getaway Stroller


Three people abandoned a child after attempting to shoplift items from a store using a baby stroller. At 2:30 PM on Monday, October 7, a 20-year-old man, a 28-year-old man, and a 23-year-old woman entered a chain drug store on Broadway and concealed merchandise in a stroller holding a one-year-old child. The three shoplifters then tried to leave the store without paying. A 44-year-old male store employee attempted to recover the merchandise, but he was assaulted by the thieves, sustaining cuts to his chin and throat. The three shoplifters then fled the scene, abandoning the stroller with the child still in it. The three were apprehended, arrested, and charged with robbery. The items stolen included three cartons of Hall's, three cartons of Wrigley's, three cartons of Dentynes, and one carton of Tic Tacs totaling $296.
