Mom Used Infant to Hide Stolen Items While Shoplifting

Shortly thereafter, officers with the Baton Rouge Police Department were summoned in regards to a “shoplifting in progress.” When officers arrived, they were pointed in Robertson’s direction as she allegedly attempted to leave the premises in her car.
