Women Accused of Stealing Baby Clothing From Carter's, Gymboree, Babies 'R' US

The following information was supplied by the Utica Police Department. Where arrests or charges are mentioned, it does not indicate a conviction.

Police stopped three women last week on Hall Road after they allegedly stole more than $700 in children’s clothing and merchandise from baby stores in Utica.

The women were pulled over at a gas station on Hall and Schoenherr roads last Wednesday after the manager at Carter’s Clothing called police and reported that three women had just left the store with several bags of unpaid clothing.

Police spotted the vehicle, and inside found three Detroit women, ranging in ages of 28 to 38. The driver had a suspended license and one of the passengers had a gun and a concealed weapons permit. Her gun was confiscated and her license taken.

Inside the vehicle, police found bags full of clothes from , Gymboree and Children’s Place. There were also large items from Babies"R"Us such as a Pack N Play, swing and diapers.

The women told police the items belonged to a family member who was having a baby. However, they could not produce a receipt for any of the items and had wire clippers typically used to cut sensors, police said in their report.

The driver was arrested and faces charges of retail fraud, second-degree.

All the vermin are crawling out of Detroit to reek havoc in the burbs. Yeah, I'll vote for a rapid transit system to connect Detroit with Oakland/Macomb. Forget rapid transit and build more prisons. The last thing we need is another "Soul Train."
