It wasn't the load in a baby's diaper - but rather under it - that got two women arrested in Cherry Hill last weekend, police said.
Police handcuffed Amanda Platt, 21, of Belleplain, N.J., and Pornthip Charoensook, 34, of Egg Harbor Township, N.J., Saturday after the two women were seen hiding more than $500 in cosmetics underneath a 4-month-old infant in a stroller at about 4:40 p.m. inside the Sephora store in the Cherry Hill Mall, said Lt. Amy C. Winters, a Cherry Hill Police spokeswoman. The baby was sitting in a car seat mounted atop a stroller, Winters said.
Both women were charged with shoplifting and using a juvenile to commit a crime. Charoensook also was charged with hindering apprehension after giving police a phony identity. Both women were released on their own recognizance and the incident was referred to the Division of Child Protection and Permanency, Winters added.
