Police say crafty thieves used a baby carrier in a shopping cart to make off with expensive electronics gear.
It happened several times last Thursday at the Wal-Mart in Havelock.
Police say the two men and one woman are believed to have taken two Blue Ray DVD players and GPS devices. One man is seen in store video over a two hour period making four trips to a vehicle in the parking lot and placing an undetermined number of items in the car. Store video shows none of the three people passing through checkout lines.
Boxes for the electronics are later found in various places in the store and police believe one of the men stole the merchandise, which was later concealed under the baby carrier by the woman.
Anyone with information about the identity of the three people should contact Havelock police at 252-447-3212.
