Baby Dropped During Shoplifting Incident at Walmart

Police say a shoplifter dropped a baby as she was walking out of a store on the north side of Peoria.

Authorities say the woman was among three suspected shoplifters spotted at the Walmart on Allen Road just after noon on Thursday.

“Upon leaving the store with the stolen merchandise, the baby was dropped. The three females continued on, fleeing towards the parking lot,” says Peoria Police Public Information Officer Amy Dotson.

Officer Dotson says it appears the baby is fine. One woman is in custody, although it’s not clear if she’s the one who dropped the baby.
