A Florida woman has been charged with theft after she allegedly used her young child to steal an expensive stroller at Disney World and sell it online.

According to ABC Action News, Michelle Craig of Spring Hill allegedly was photographed stealing a high-end stroller from outside a ride at Hollywood Studios on April 15, which belonged to the victim, Lauren Collazo.

The Bugaboo stroller had an estimated value of $1,800 but also had Collazo’s car keys, wallets and her niece's EpiPen underneath. Collazo was stranded at the theme park and was forced to call her husband, who flew from Miami to assist.

Orange County detectives issued an arrest warrant for Craig on a charge of Grand Theft, and she turned herself into the Hernando County Sheriff's Office last week. Police confirmed they are investigating Craig in relation to other luxury stroller thefts at Disney.

ABC Action News discovered that Craig had been selling numerous high-end strollers on her Facebook page, along with designer purses and diaper bags.

When the theft became a major topic on social media, a woman from Texas contacted Collazo after she reportedly purchased the stolen stroller from Craig. The unidentified woman claims the stroller even had the tie wraps where Collazo’s name was written when it was stolen.

This incident hits a chord for many parents who visit theme parks across the United States, as guests are forced to leave their strollers in designated areas throughout the attractions. The theft highlights just how susceptible these items are.

Disney and other theme parks must begin looking at how they secure and monitor areas where strollers are left unattended.
