COUPLE

 

A couple in Palm Springs, Fla., allegedly had a great formula for getting money to pay for their pain pill addiction.

Police say Sonya Barbour, 32, and her fiance, 31-year-old Glenn Martin, managed to steal more than $90,000 worth of baby formula before being arrested Thursday. Authorities say the couple was caught with $2,388 worth of baby formula concealed under a blanket in their shopping cart, according to UPI.com.

The couple’s 9-month-old child was with them.

Upon questioning, both Barbour and Martin allegedly admitted to stealing baby formula for months, in part to finance their pain pill addictions. Police say Martin told them he spends up to $125 a day on the addiction, while Barbour spends up to $90, the Florida Sun-Sentinel reported.

The couple allegedly started filching the formula six months ago, and would sell the cans for about $9 to $15 apiece.

Martin and Barbour were booked into the Palm Beach County Jail. They face multiple charges including fraud, shoplifting, organized dealing in stolen property, and child neglect.

Other criminals are finding that stealing baby formula is the formula for quick cash, according to Anthony Sizemore of the Cape Coral, Fla., Police Dept., who recently arrested Jenny L. Fasching, 31, for a similar crime.
