Couple Involved in High-Speed Chase After Allegedly Stealing Baby Formula

steals baby formulaImagine stealing something intended to help sustain a child’s life only to deliberately place a child in harms way moments later. While details of the story are still being released, reports of a San Bernardino couple who recently stole baby formula from Target are causing quite a few jaws to drop. While the stealing itself is a crime the fallout behind such a crime can’t compare to the fallout behind what happened after the couple left the store. Perhaps even worse, is the idea of what could have happened.

Following a dispute with the store security the couple were involved in a high-speed car chase with law enforcement. But they weren’t alone, they had two children in the car with them.

According to the CBS news story, witnesses watched the pursuit end after the driver lost control of their vehicle and the couple grabbed the two children and ran. Although witnesses in the community reported that they did not recognize the couple they did note that they saw the children crying as they ran. Eventually police detained the suspects and later removed “bags full of baby formula” from their car.

Thankfully the children were not injured during the course of the pursuit. Even so, the fact that they were placed in such a situation is unthinkable. As parents our job is to love, nurture, and protect our children and yet the reality is, sometimes parents do anything but. Police noted that had they been aware that children were in the car they would not have preceded with the pursuit. For more on this story visit CBS Los Angeles.
