PORTER, Texas -- Montgomery County Precinct 4 constables said three men and three women were taken into custody after a shoplifting incident at the Walmart in Porter.

Officials said the constables were called as the suspects were stealing from the store. When they arrived, they scattered into the parking lot.

Authorities said one female suspect had her 6-month-old baby in a car waiting in the nearby parking lot with an adult inside.

Officials said a different male suspect grabbed the child from the car and fled. That suspect and baby were later apprehended.

The baby is safe, and is now being cared for by his mother's step mom.

Officials said the group stole at least $2,000 from Walmart, and had made numerous stops at other stores between New Caney to Porter. They appeared to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
