Three women stealing a stroller were caught on camera in a Bambi Baby store in New Jersey on Friday.
Surveillance footage shared by Bambi Baby showed two women distracting an employee while the third one grabbed a stroller and briskly walked out with it – forgetting her baby and foiling the theft in the process.
Bambi Baby described the theft as "unreal" while sharing the video on Facebook.
According to NDTV sources, at least six minutes passed before one of the three women returned to the store for the child.
"I was devastated that someone would leave their child in a store to worry more about stealing a stroller," said store owner Enelio Ortega.
"If you need to steal for a living, that's a personal problem, that's a personal issue. But when you bring children that have no idea what's going on, that affected me. That's why I'm sharing the video as much as possible."
New Jersey police were able to track down and detain two of the three women. They were charged with shoplifting and conspiracy.
