CITY OF BROOKFIELD - Baby formula isn't necessarily the most common item that thieves target, but it's moving up the ladder recently possibly thanks to two suspects.

City of Brookfield police have released surveillance photos of two men suspected of having committed a number of thefts around the Milwaukee and Waukesha areas.

Last week Pick 'n Save, 17295 W. Capitol Drive, reported that on Feb. 24 at 1:56 p.m. two men had entered the store and concealed six cans of Gerber Good Start baby formula each inside their coats.

The suspects are described as being age 50 to 60. One is described as a white man standing 6 foot 2 inches, weighing 180 to 200 pounds with brown hair. The second is described as a black man standing 5 foot 8 inches, weighing 160 to 180 pounds with black hair.

The same men are suspected of having committed a similar theft at a Waukesha Pick 'n Save March 2 when eight cans of baby formula were stolen, as well as other similar crimes in the area.

Anyone with information is encouraged to contact city of Brookfield police at 262-787-3702.
