Baby Formula Shoplifting Suspects Sought

Coventry Police are looking for two shoplifting suspects. Check out the photos below to see if you help identify them.


The Coventry Police Department is attempting to identify two suspects involved in two separate shoplifting incidents at the Walmart located in the Coventry's Centre of New England plaza.

During the first incident on Sunday Dec. 2, 2012, a male and female both walked out of store with baby formula that was not paid for.

The second incident took place on Saturday, Dec. 8. Only the male entered the store and took baby formula without paying, exited the store and got into a vehicle with an unidentified operator. 

Police describe both the male and female suspects as being of medium height and build with light complexions.

Both thefts involved approximately $1,000 worth of baby formula. 

The suspects' vehicle is described as a mid-2000 Chevy Impala-style vehicle, light in color. The vehicle is missing the right front hubcap, and a rear tail light may be broken. 

If you have any information about the identity of the suspects, contact the Coventry Police at 401-826-1100.

for one of the largest retailers in the country they have some pretty terrible security equipment :/

Very poor quality photos, also kind of a sad thing to have to shoplift (if it is for their child and not to sell). Formula is pricey, but if they need that for their child and they can't afford it, isn't there programs like WIC that cover formula?

Haha, what do you expect from bargain-basement Walmart? They are the top of the food chain for 'lows'! Low prices, low wages, low quality merchandise and low quality closed circuit tv!

I think more disturbing than the poor quality security photos of a national chain store like Walmart is the crystal clear photos that people take of the yoga pants wearers of Walmart..c'mon man

It is still wrong to steal, if you steal once, you probably will steal again. Plus I don't see any baby in the pictures?
