Store Video Puts Squeeze On Would-Be Diaper Scam

Authorities are on the lookout for a woman who uses Huggies disposable diapers to get cash from retailers.

Greeneville police responded about 6:20 p.m. Monday to the Walgreens on the Asheville Highway (Tenn. Rt. 70). The manager told officers that a woman took a receipt from the garbage in back of the Walgreens at 1650 East Andrew Johnson Hwy. and entered the Asheville Highway store.

She took a package of Huggies listed on the receipt to the front register and tried to get a refund, Officer Chad Ricker said in the report.

The cashier refused to give the woman a refund.

"The lady then took the item and left the store," the report said.

The Huggies are valued at $11.49. A photo of the woman from store video was placed into evidence.

"The manager said this lady has done the same thing at Walgreens stores in the region," the report said.

The suspect is described as heavy-set and wearing a pink shirt and blue jeans.

Store cameras were not able to get an image of the vehicle she left in, the report said.
