There have been several accounts of shoplifting unusual items at Target and the Big Y. Captain Cedergren of the Bethel Police Department reports that thefts of items like baby formula and name brand detergent have increased. There is evidence that these items are stolen to be resold by drug users in some of New York City's poorer areas, Cedergren said. He added that items are viewed in terms of how much they are worth in the purchase of heroin.
