Once the pair entered the Country Store in Carriere the female distracted the clerk in the rear of the store while the male stayed near the front door with the child, the report states.

While the clerk was distracted the male left the child on the floor in the car seat to steal a donation jar off the counter, which was collecting for a save-a-life charity. The male then took the jar to the van, which was tan in color. The male came back in to the store before both subjects left in the van.

Anyone with information about the couple or the incident can call anonymously at 601-799-CLUE (2583).
