This is the moment two shoplifters use an innocent baby in a pushchair as a prop as they grab an armful of pregnancy test kits and nipple creams in a chemist.
The incident occurred in the Russian city of Chelyabinsk, located to the east of the Ural Mountains, on the border of Europe and Asia.
The footage that was captured by surveillance cameras installed inside the store to the two men pushing a baby carriage checking to see if no one is around grabbing the pregnancy test kits off the shelf.
The pair also reportedly grabbed several packets of an ointment for chapped nipples of nursing mothers as well as the pregnancy testing kits.
One of the men is seen putting the storm items in the baby carriage, while the other stuffs items inside his jacket. Then after one final check to make sure nobody is around, the pair then leave the store.
The management of the store said that the items stolen were worth around 3,000 RUB (42 GBP).
Thanks to the recordings from CCTV cameras, law enforcement were able to identify the robbers.
According to local media the pair, who have not been named, were identified and have been arrested.
