Diaper Desperados Swipe $600 in Goods from Pathmark: Cops

That's a lot of diapers

The Newark Police Department needs your help tracking down two women who, police say, boosted around hundreds of dollars in goods from a Pathmark in the College Square Shopping Center over the weekend.

The whole incident was caught on surveillance video.

On Saturday at about 10:20 a.m., the two suspects filled their cart with diapers, body cleaning products and laundry detergent before bypassing the checkout lanes and leaving without paying, according to police.

All told the duo swiped about 600 bucks worth of pilfered goods, cops said.

Some customers in the store saw the women leaving and alerted employees.

"As the store employee approached them on the parking lot, the pair jumped in their vehicle and fled the area," Lt. Mark Farrall said. "They did leave several of the items still in their cart in the parking lot."

Investigators are looking for an older model white Toyota Camry with no license plate and a broken rear passenger window with tape on it.

"There was no license plate displayed on the vehicle, however what was distinctive... is that the right rear window of the vehicle had been broken out and taped over," Farrall said.

Anyone with information on the identity of the two suspects or location of the vehicle is asked to contact PFC Adam Mease at 302-366-7110 ext. 404 or adam.mease@cj.state.de.us.
