Madison Police arrested a woman Thursday afternoon after she allegedly used a stroller to try to rip off a pair of businesses.
Employees at the Walgreens on S. Whitney Way saw the woman pushing a baby stroller with no infant inside.
A pharmacy associate watched as she filled the stroller with diapers and detergent, and covered the merchandise with a blanket.
He confronted the woman, who tired to leave without paying. He demanded she turn over the nearly $90 worth of items.
The woman then took her stroller to the nearby Copps. There she tried to return detergent, even though she didn't have a receipt.
An employee from the Walgreens called the Copps around the same time, warning them about the woman. He said she may still have a bottle of shoplifted detergent.
Police arrived and found a bottle of detergent and a bottle of tequila in the stroller.
After some back and forth with the responding officer, the woman reportedly admitted she had stolen the alcohol.
49-year-old Beverly Clayton was arrested for retail theft, and on a probation hold.
