    Police in Lincoln, Rhode Island, are looking for a woman they say used a small child to help her steal from a customer at Target.

    WJAR-TV reports the woman directed the child to steal a stroller with an infant car seat and diaper bag that was left unattended briefly at the store on Nov. 11.

    Police say the woman and child walked out of the store with the items, which included the customer's cellphone. Target loaned the victim a car seat so she could get home.

    Police released photos of the woman and say she was driving a silver minivan. They asked anyone with information to call police.
