LOGAN, Utah (AP) — Police are looking for two women they say stole thousands of dollars’ worth of baby formula from stores in Utah.

KSL-TV reports (http://bit.ly/22pZWts ) that surveillance cameras at Lee’s Marketplace in Logan captured the thieves in the act a few weeks ago. Logan Police Capt. Curtis Hooley says the pair also visited three other stores, hiding $3,700 of formula in their clothing.

Hooley says he believes the women are selling the formula on the black market. He says he’s not sure what the formula is used for but says it is a nationwide trend.

Hooley says similar thefts have been reported in Salt Lake City and Idaho Falls.
