Charleston Police are investigating another shoplifting theft of baby formula at a James Island grocery store.

Police responded Thursday at approximately 7:30 p.m. to the Publix on Folly Road where store employees reported someone stole $354.51 in baby formula earlier in the day, according to Charleston Police spokesman Charles Francis.

Police say the theft occurred at approximately 4:39 p.m. when a man placed several different kinds of baby formula into a shopping cart and walked out the door past the last cash register without paying, an incident report states.

The suspect was approximately 5'8 to 6' tall with a slim build, some facial hair, the report states.

It is not yet clear whether this theft could be related to a string of similar thefts that occurred in the same store on Feb. 6, Feb. 21 and Feb. 26.

Police released three surveillance images Thursday, just hours before the latest shoplifting occurred. One image showed a woman and the other two showed a man believed to be the same person on different dates.

Anyone with information on any of the thefts is asked to contact Charleston County Consolidated Dispatch at 843-743-7200 and ask for the on-duty Charleston Police detective or call Crime Stoppers at 843-554-1111.
