Man Nabbed Trying to Steal Baby Formula: Police

Police arrest Robert Carollo, 49, at local Walmart.

A man attempting to filch baby formula in White Plains was arrested earlier this week, authorities said.

Robert Carollo, 49, tucked six cans Enfamil inside his jacket at the 275 Main Street Walmart, police said, and attempted to stroll out. The alleged theft occurred last Sunday at about 8:20 p.m.

Police arrested Carollo on store premises and—due to his being on a no-bail list—held him overnight. Carollo faces a petty larceny charge, a misdemeanor.

Did the Walmart or Police try to see if his baby or grandchild really needed the formula to survive? In today's economy even though it is 100% wrong to steal this man may have been trying to feed his child......the world is in a sad state.............

So naive. Baby formula and laundry detergent are hot items to steal because there is a high demmand on black market or trade for drugs. Easily convertible to cash quickly. Next time go to Cvs or Shoprite and ask a manager why they keep them locked up.

Still in all, a sad short story. Only 6. Doesn't sound like a big heist.
