the great baby formula scheme, aka "Operation Enfamil"

3:20 p.m. A woman and man at Hilltop Inn at 3601 S. Thompson St. reported that several people come to the hotel several times a month and unload baby formula off of a truck. They have been coming up from Texas once or twice a month for the past year and always drive a white van, stay for a couple days and leave with several cases of Enfamil and other items. The man reported that about six months ago, the individuals left $3,000 under the mattress in the room they stayed in and came back later that day to pick up the money. Two women rented the room on April 6, and on April 7 there were about 12 or 13 people in the motel room, the callers said. They loaded several cases of Enfamil and other items, and the callers noticed the group was very cautious and seemed very paranoid while loading the items in the van. When the callers looked into the room, there were several items of clothing from Wal-Mart with the price tags still on them and several price tag attachments scattered over the room.
