A suspected shoplifter is accused of hiding clothing in a baby stroller and putting his child in danger as he tried to get away from store employees.
Samuel Alexander, 29, of Lancaster, pushed the stroller with his two-year-old son at a fast rate of speed through the Kohl's department store at Park City Center and "created a physically hazardous condition for the child," charging documents state.
Alexander was wearing two pairs of stolen pants, valued at $176, when he was arrested Tuesday night, and more than $400 worth of stolen clothing was found in the stroller, according to the documents.
City police also arrested 28-year-old Kimyatta Powell, also of Lancaster, after surveillance video showed that she handed Alexander several items that he hid in the stroller for her, documents state.
Police said in the documents that Alexander and Powell remained in phone contact while they were apart in the store.
Both were charged with theft and conspiracy, while Alexander faces an additional count of disorderly conduct.
Alexander was sent to Lancaster County Prison on $5,000 cash bail.
