A Black Market for Baby Formula?

A woman who is believed to have stolen more than $400 dollars of baby formula from CVS last month allegedly heisted another $634.23 worth of it from the same store last week.

According to police, the woman's been identified in surveillance footage and there's a warrant pending for her arrest.


On Oct. 4 at 3:18 p.m., an elderly New Canaan couple reported to police they arrived home at their Knapp Lane residence and discovered someone had forced entry to their home through the rear door. The couple left the house at 1:15 p.m. that day.

Upon inspection, the couple reported "obvious signs things were rummaged through," police said. 

Items stolen include a watch valued at $2,500, two gold necklaces valued at $500 each, a gold chain bracelet valued at $1,000 and approximately $40 worth of quarters.
