A Milwaukee man and a Chicago woman are suspected of stealing 90 cans of baby formula from a Madison Walmart.

Security at the store on Nakoosa Trail said the man and woman put the formula in a shopping cart and covered cans with T-shirts and other merchandise before pushing the cart out without paying.

They were still in the parking lot when police arrived Friday afternoon. Officers said the baby formula was recovered from the trunk of their car.

Walmart staff members placed the retail value of the stolen items at approximately $1,500.

Antonio C. Tate, 23, of Milwaukee, and Jamieka B. Coleman-Wertz, 24, of Chicago, were arrested on suspicion of felony retail theft.
