The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is asking for the public’s help in identifying two women who allegedly shoplifted a large amount of baby formula from a Walmart in Rochester on at least two separate occasions.

The thefts occurred on May 1 and June 21. The women reportedly used children to act as spotters for them while they stole the baby formula. In one of the thefts, one of the women was stopped and abandoned her shopping cart after being confronted by a store manager, but the other woman still managed to leave with the concealed formula.

The women are known to drive a silver Suburban and silver Cadillac SRX.

Anyone with information on the suspects is asked to call the Rochester Police Department in 507-328-6927.
