Police in search of thieves who took baby formula

Greenfield police are looking for two Milwaukee women, ages 33 and 37, who are suspects in retail thefts involving a high volume of baby formula from Target stores in the Milwaukee area.

According to the Greenfield Police Department:

Target security at the Greenfield store, 4777 S. 27th St., reported the two women had taken a purse valued at $15 and five cans of baby formula valued at $72, at 6:21 p.m. April 10.

After taking the formula, the women fled on 27th Street in a 1989 gray four-door Chevrolet Corsica driven by a man.

It appears the women may also be involved in similar thefts from Targets in West Milwaukee and Menomonee Falls.

The investigation still continues. No arrests have been made.
