MOUNT LAUREL, N.J. (AP) - Authorities say a Philadelphia couple they say used a baby stroller to steal high-end baseball bats in southern New Jersey has been arrested.

Mount Laurel police said that Edward and Nicolle Hatch were arrested in Bensalem, Pennsylvania, late Tuesday night after an arrest warrant was issued earlier this week.

Police say the pair cut the security locks on several Easton Mako Torq BBCOR baseball bats at a Dick’s Sporting Goods and concealed five in their baby stroller. Police say the bats were worth $2,750.

They face third-degree shoplifting charges and also face charges for allegedly taking cash from an amusement game and vending machine from the Funplex in Mount Laurel on March 21.

They are in Bucks County Jail and weren’t immediately available to comment. Police say they will be extradited to New Jersey.
