This is the shocking moment a mother and her sister abandon her baby after a supermarket security guard confront them for shoplifting.
Freshly released CCTV catches Allison Niemeyer, 19, and her 22-year-old sister Laura casually walking out of the Walmart in Ocala, Florida, pushing the innocent one-year-old in a shopping trolley.
What the grainy footage does not show is the $60-worth of stolen goods, including men’s white undershirts, a bathing suit and four women’s shirts, allegedly stuffed into a diaper bag in the trolley’s hold.
But as an eagle-eyed security guard attempts to apprehend the sisters, Allison swiftly passes her child to her sister and flees apparently without a second thought.
Laura instantly follows suit leaving the baby alone in the supermarket’s foyer.
