CORTLAND, N.Y. (AP) - State police say they’re looking for three men believed to have stolen $10,000 worth of powdered baby formula from several central New York Walmart stores.

Security camera images show the suspects in the baby product aisle. In one photo, a man has a shopping cart brimming with cans of Enfamil powder. Troopers say formula was stolen at stores in Cortland, Johnson City and Cicero.

Baby formula theft has been a problem at stores nationwide for years because it’s a high price item that’s always in demand. Some retailers keep it locked up.

Thieves typically sell the formula at flea markets or at online sites like Craigslist and eBay.

A 12-ounce can of powdered Enfamil retails for $17 and makes 15 6-ounce bottles of formula.
