Police in Bucks County say a pair of suspected shoplifters left a 3-year-old boy in a supermarket cart as they fled arrest. The boy is in the care of relatives after being abandoned Thursday at an Acme in Bristol Township.

Authorities say the couple were trying to steal sandals and fireworks.

Police are still looking for 29-year-old John Wright III of Middletown, who is wanted on several prior warrants.

They are also seeking 29-year-old Casilyn Brofman of Fairless Hills, the aunt of the abandoned boy.

Authorities say the boy's mother was working at the time.
