GLENDALE, Calif. (AP) -- Authorities say two men dressed in women's clothing and carrying purses were among three arrested on suspicion of stealing baby formula from stores in Glendale.
The Long Beach Press-Telegram reported Wednesday (http://bit.ly/1oJWhQk ) that 20-year-old Darrin Lamont White and 25-year-old Edward Stephen Nino face burglary charges.
They were taken into custody Tuesday after being caught stuffing cans of formula into their purses at a Rite Aid store, and then leaving without paying.
Police searched their car and found two dozen more cans of formula, some of which were reported stolen from a nearby Vons store.
A third man, 28-year-old Samuel Frank, was also arrested.
Law enforcement officials have noted that thieves have been targeting baby items, especially pricey baby formula, to sell on the black market.
