Police responded to a shoplifting call at a West Virginia Kroger grocery store but were in for so much more.

St. Albans police officer, Sgt Philip Bass, was part of the team that responded to the call about someone shoplifting a Christmas tree at the store. While there, they were informed that a woman and baby had been in the bathroom for more than 20 minutes.

39-year-old Donnyell Harrison, reportedly locked herself in the store’s bathroom with a 14-month-old crying baby.

“The lady let us in the bathroom and then we saw her, and this little baby, she was sitting in a buggy with a baby bottle of Dr. Pepper,” the officer said. And she replied, “Well, I didn’t have anything else to give her!” And I said, “Well, you’re in Kroger!”

While being in a grocery store, the officer found it unforgivable that the woman couldn’t provide any other food for the baby other than filling her bottle with soda.

In a news release, police stated that Harrison, who is not the baby’s mother was arrested and charged with drug possession with the intent to distribute.

The baby’s mother is currently serving time in jail and had left the baby with another person, who had then given her to Harrison to care for.

Officer Bass cared for the child until Child Protective Services could arrive and take over.

“Sometimes we’re a warrior, sometimes we’re a guardian, sometimes we’re a babysitter!” Cpt James said.
