When Cherry Hill Police nabbed two suspected shoplifting suspects running from the Wegmans supermarket they didn't expect to find an infant in the cart they left behind in the store.
But police say that's exactly what happened and charged a Delaware and Pennsylvania woman in connection with the crime, as well as turning the eight-month old baby over to a family member.
Events began about 7 p.m. Sunday night, police say, when they were called to the Wegmans on Route 70 over a shoplifting incident reported by the store.
Store employees told police that two women had attempted to hide goods in a shopping cart which also held a baby boy. The women fled when confronted by store security. However, they left behind the cart with the allegedly stolen goods, as well as the baby.
