The incident followed a similar theft at a Mission Viejo Target the day before, where the suspects allegedly took more than $1,000 worth of formula, authorities said.

The same day of the Irvine theft, a theft in Anaheim resulted in a loss of $800 worth of formula and the arrest of the male suspect, Sajaunte Maurice Burks, 23, of San Diego.

Police have been unable to identify the woman seen on surveillance video with Burks, authorities said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Irvine Police Detective Matt Ricci at 949-724-7189.
