Couple with Baby Suspected of Shoplifting from New Clothing Business

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. - A couple with a baby are the recent suspects of a shoplifting investigation at a new clothing business in downtown San Luis Obispo.

The owner of Vanja Couture says a woman walked into the boutique on Higuera Street on Sunday and stole $400 Luxe Australian sheepskin boots imported from Australia. The owner says a man was waiting for the woman outside and he was pushing a baby in a stroller.

"They are standing outside watching and waiting for the right moment. He's standing on his tippy toes trying to see when's the right moment to strike. When they decide it's right he turns his baby stroller around like he ready to make the getaway and goes in for the kill and grabs the matching boots and walks out the door," says Kier Staehely, owner of Vanja Couture.

If you recognize the suspects, you are asked to contact the San Luis Obispo Police Department.
