FRESNO, Calif. — Authorities say eight people, including a baby, teamed to rob a California store of gold.

The Fresno Bee reports the group, comprised of six women, a man and a baby, was able to distract the owner of a Fresno jewelry store while one of the women stole gold merchandise from a safe.

All eight, including the baby, managed to flee.

The vehicle used in the alleged crime was a van, possibly a Dodge Caravan, with paper license plates and damage to the driver’s side.
