Two of the women distracted an employee while the third woman went to the front of the store to grab a stroller, police said. The women left the store, but one of them forgot some precious cargo — her own child.
“What I take major offense to is the children. Don’t do that with your children,” Enelio Ortega, told WCBS. "If you need to steal for a living, that’s a personal problem, that’s a personal issue. But when you bring children that have no idea what’s going on, that affected me. That’s why I’m sharing [the video] as much as possible."
A post on Bambi Baby's Facebook page described the theft as "unreal."
Top-selling strollers on the store's website indicate they could range from $400 to $1,000. Ortega said the one taken last week from the Middletown shop cost $300.
Investigators arrested two of the women, Maryann Cash, 23, and Nan McCarthy, 20, of England, while a third woman remained at large. Ortega said the stolen stroller was returned.
