PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) – Two Rhode Island men have been arrested in connection with the theft of $90,000 worth of diapers.

Police say 59-year-old Aubrey Bettis, of Providence, was supposed to drive a truckload of diapers from Pennsylvania to an Amazon distribution facility in Fall River, Mass. earlier this month. Instead, police say he sold the diapers in Rhode Island and abandoned the truck.

Bettis and 41-year-old Damon Martin, of Coventry, were arraigned in District Court Thursday and released pending their next court date. They face larceny over $1,500 and other charges. A lawyer for one of the men didn’t immediately comment.
Police recovered about 800 boxes of diapers but an additional 1,200 boxes are still missing. Each box holds about 100 diapers and sells for roughly $40 in retail stores.
Police are also seeking a third suspect.
