Investigators said Barbour and Martin were attempting to leave the store with $2,388 worth of baby formula concealed under a blanket in their shopping cart.

Both said they have pain-pill addictions, with Barbour spending about $90 per day on drugs and Martin spending up to $125 per day.

Martin told investigators he has been stealing baby formula for about six months and has netted about $90,000 from selling it, police said.

Barbour and Martin were both charged with fraud, shoplifting, organized dealing in stolen property and child neglect. Martin was held in lieu of $43,000 bond and Barbour's bond was set at $35,000.

Their baby was turned over to the Florida Department of Children and Families, police said.
