Multi-million dollar baby formula theft ring shattered

ORANGE COUNTY, Florida (WESH) – Florida investigators have accused three women of stealing baby formula then selling it for profits in the millions.

Alicia Tondreau-Leve, of Rockledge, is the accused baby formula scheme leader and recruited Guilyanna Guzman, of Orlando, and Alexis Lyn Dattadeen, of New Port Richey, to steal large quantities of formula from various Publix, Walmart, Winn Dixie and Target stores, investigators said.

“They would take these cloth bags, reusable bag… go to the aisle, fill up bag, walk out, not pay, get into vehicle waiting outside and drive away,” said Sheriff’s Office spokesman Jeff Newcomb.

Tondreau-Leve allegedly advertised her business, “Formula Mom,” on Craigslist and made $2 million from the illegal operation, deputies said.
