Shoplifters in Spain leave baby behind at store

A couple in Barcelona, Spain forgot something important when shoplifting from a local bookstore. Their baby.

They were noticed by the store manager slipping items into their clothes and bags last Saturday. When they realized they had been seen, they ran, leaving their baby behind in its stroller.

The manager called Mossos d’Esquadra (the local Civil Guard) who cared for the infant during the investigation.

The couple then returned to the store later in the day to try to retrieve the infant, and were arrested by police.
