GLOUCESTER TOWNSHIP, N.J. (CBS) – Gloucester Township Police are searching for a suspect accused of stealing baby formula in three separate thefts.

Police say baby formula is one of the most shoplifted items due to its cost, portability and high resale value.

In the first incident, a black male entered the Blackwood Clementon Road Rite Aid store on April 25, 2014. He concealed $150 worth of baby formula and hid it in his maroon and white letterman style jacket. He left the store without any attempt to pay for the merchandise.

The same suspect entered the K-Mart on Blackwood Clementon Road on May 12, 2014 and concealed $160 worth of baby formula in a black shopping bag he brought in the store with him. Again, he left without attempting to pay.

In the third incident on May 22, the same suspect again entered the K-Mart on Blackwood Clementon Road. He took $110 worth of baby formula and hid it in the same maroon and white letterman style jacket from the first incident. He left without any attempt to pay.

If you have any information or can identify the suspects in the photos, please call the GTPD Anonymous Crime Tip Line at 856-842-5560.
