Mom says thieves created baby formula shortage; Two Muskegon, MI suspects identified  Police say they have identified the two women accused of stealing hundreds of dollars' worth of baby formula from Muskegon-area stores. The Norton Shores Police said the suspects stole more than $1,000 worth of baby formula. The two suspects were caught on surveillance camera leaving one of the stores. Candice Kops, a mother of three, told 24 Hour News 8 she was personally impacted by the thefts. "The past couple of weeks, I have had a problem with getting my girls specialty formula, the Enfamil Enfacare. I've had to search all over Muskegon County," said Kops. Kops has 7-month-old twin daughters who were born three months premature and need the specific formula to stay healthy. "Because the girls were so small, they need the extra calories to boost their weights. And one was weighing one pound, 15 ounces when she was born and the other one was two pounds, five and a half ounces. That extra bit of calories means a lot to them because they were so little and they spent 64 and 68 days in the hospital," Kops said. According to Kops, stores receive a limited supply of the Enfamil Enfacare because it is expensive - it costs around $17 per can - and not a lot of people need it. Empty shelves at a Meijer store Wednesday afternoon helped prove that claim.
