WESTFIELD, Massachusetts — This mom is definitely not trying to win any parent of the year awards.
Cops in Massachusetts are hunting for a woman who turned her poor baby into an unwitting accessory to robbery, by wandering through a health food store, stealing items and stashing them under the infant as she carried it around the shop.
Surveillance camera footage shows the woman walking around the store carrying an infant in a portable bassinet and stopping to take items off the shelf and then stuff them under the baby’s legs.
She then left the store without paying, cops said.
“Video shows pretty clearly the woman remove an item from its box and hide it between the child’s legs,” said Det. Rick Mazza of the Westfield police told the Springfield Republican.
