It was surveillance video from a Georgetown Walmart that caught authorities attention. You can see two people in the video filling plastic containers, that authorities say were from the store, with thousands of dollars worth of baby formula. They pour the formula into the containers, then placing them back on the shelves. They then leave the store.

Police say minutes after this video aired on 27 NewsFirst the calls started coming in. They say there were actually three people involved in the theft.

According to police, one of the suspects even turned themselves in. From that point on they were able to determine who they were looking for.

Police say the three responsible are Ray Ray Sharp, Victoria Chenault, and Herman Jones of Lexington. One has been charged. Warrants have been issued for the other two, although police are not officially releasing at this time the individual that turned themselves in and the ones they are looking for.

They do say the three have been involved in similar incidents, one in Lexington, one in Bourbon County in June where they say Ray Ray Sharp was arrested, and another in Georgetown last week where authorities say it appears they were unable to get the stolen goods out of the door at a Kroger.

Police say the trio will face felony shoplifting charges. If you have any information on where the suspects may be, you are asked to contact Georgetown Police.
