Thief takes two trips to strip shelves of baby formula

Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers is asking for the public’s help identifying and tracking down a woman who stole several hundred dollars worth of baby formula from a Lee County Publix earlier this week.

On Tuesday, November 28th, a white female entered the Publix grocery store, located at 13121 Paul J. Doherty Parkway.  She left and returned a short time later, and this time an employee spotted the woman loading cans of baby formula from the shelves and into her purse.  The employee followed the woman out of the store and attempted to detain her, however she quickly sped off in a blue Chevy four door sedan before the employee could retrieve the stolen goods.  A review of video and store inventory revealed that the woman stole 15 various brands of baby food, totaling more than $300.

Anyone with information on the identity and whereabouts of the suspect is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS (8477).  All callers will remain anonymous and will be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000.  Tips may also be made online at www.southwestfloridacrimestoppers.com or by submitting a tip on the P3Tips mobile app.
