BELLEVILLE – Two stroller-pushing women are facing shoplifting charges after Napanee OPP’s [2] public appeal for help led to their arrest.

Police reached out to the community for tips following the suspected theft of clothing and jewelry from downtown businesses in Napanee [3] on Aug. 23.

Authorities released video surveillance showing the alleged shoplifters entering a business with young children in strollers. OPP asked for the public’s assistance in identifying them.

As a result, a 54-year-old Belleville woman has been charged with three counts of theft under $5,000. The second suspect, a 50-year-old Brighton woman, faces two counts.

Both women are set to appear in a Napanee court [4] on Oct. 25.
