A Chandler couple and 14 other people was arrested following an investigation into the purchase and resale of stolen baby formula from boosters, who shoplifted it from local stores, Chandler police said.

Rafid Khoshi, 46, and his wife, Manal Sulaiman, 43, both of Chandler, were arrested on May 23 on suspicion of purchasing stolen baby formula from boosters, said Detective Seth Tyler of the Chandler Police Department.

The boosters would shoplift the baby formula from a variety of Albertsons, Bashas', Fry's, Safeway, Target and Walmart stores and then sell it to the Chandler couple for 30 to 50 cents on the dollar, Tyler said.

One of the boosters, 31-year-old Jesus Tirado Lara, is suspected of selling $46,000 worth of product to the couple and was arrested in December, Tyler said.
