Headline Goes Here

HOUSTON - A Houston mother is in trouble again for stealing cans of baby formula.

Authorities have charged Elizabeth Jayne Tabora, 31, with theft for trying to walk out of a Fiesta Mart in northwest Harris County with 28 cans of baby formula and 22 cans of baby formula powder.

According to court documents, Tabora was stopped by a security officer as she was leaving the store with her two children on Monday. Officials said she had attempted to conceal the cans of formula in a car seat that was covered with a blanket.

At the time of Tabora's arrest, she was out on bond for a previous theft charge of 82 cans of baby formula that authorities said she stole between April 19 and May 19 from a Target in Tomball.

Tabora is being held on a $5,000 bond for the latest incident. She's expected to appear in court on Sept. 3.
