Perhaps they wanted to start a daycare? Authorities in Rhode Island have made a third arrest in the case of 200,000 stolen diapers, reports ABC6. According to police, a truck driver was to deliver 2,000 boxes of diapers, worth $90,000, to an Amazon distribution facility on Feb. 9 but instead sold them, reports the Providence Journal. Rodney Dalzon, 44, who was arrested Tuesday, had leased a Providence storefront where 800 boxes were found last Wednesday, per WPRI. Another 600 boxes were found at a Providence home. Dalzon, 59-year-old Aubrey Bettis, and 41-year-old Damon Martin are charged with larceny, conspiracy, and other charges. (Read more weird crimes stories.)
