    Police in South Jersey asked for the public’s help to find a duo accused of using a baby stroller to swipe high-end baseball bats.

    A man and a woman pushing a baby stroller walked into the Dick’s Sporting Goods store on Nixon Drive Tuesday night around 8 p.m., said Mount Laurel Police.

    The duo then cut the security locks on five Easton Mako Torq BBCOR baseball bats valued at nearly $2,750 and put the bats into the stroller before leaving the store, said investigators.

    Police later identified the alleged shoplifters as Edward Hatch, 37, and Nicolle Hatch, 33, both of Philadelphia.

    The duo also swiped a $500 iPhone 6 from the Funplex on Route 38 on March 27 after it was left unattended at the prize counter, said police.

    Police issued multiple arrest warrants for both suspects on a variety of charges including criminal mischief, theft and conspiracy counts.

    Police asked anyone who knows the Hatch's whereabouts to contact Mount Laurel Police at 856-234-8300, confidentially at 856-234-1414 ext. 1599 or on Facebook.
