Baby Formula Thefts 09 Aug 13

Hutchinson Police are investigating the theft of over $1,200 worth of baby formula.

Authorities say Cashwise Foods in Hutchinson was notified that other stores in Buffalo,Delano, and St. Cloud had been the targets of baby formula thefts.

When employees in the Hutchinson store checked, they indeed found several cans of Similac formula missing.  The theft was reported to police last Friday (August 2nd).

After looking at video surveillance, two suspects were identified, a male and female who, over the course of several visits, made off with 86 cans in all for a total of $1,288.  Authorities say the male suspect appears to be the same person involved in thefts from the other stores.

The investigation continues.
