Woman caught stealing another mother's pram worth £1,400

Michelle Ashley Craig was caught stealing another woman's pram on a family holiday to Disney World Florida

You would have thought that mothers of young children would come together to join forces against their little terrors - AHEM, we mean darling children.

Life as a mum can be hard enough without unnecessary nastiness from other mothers in the same boat, yet it sadly still occurs.

Lauren was visiting the park on 15 April with her young family, and took her Bugaboo pram, which costs $1,800, along with her.

Keeping her essentials in the pram like her purse and car keys - along with her niece's vital EPIPEN - she left the pram for a minute.

And that's all it took for fellow mum Michelle Ashley Craig to put her own daughter into the pram and walk out of the park with it.

Unbelievably, Craig then proceeded to SELL the pram online to a woman in Texas on a Facebook page.

Thankfully, the woman she sold it to had seen social media posts shared on her Facebook, and then got in touch with poor Rachel, who was stranded in the park with her family.

She was able to identify it as Craig had strangely left Rachel's belongings in the pram before she sold it to her.

Speaking to ABC News, she said: "It was the fact that she took it away from me the day that I needed it the most and ruined everybody's day at Disney.

"I was there with no money, stranded. My husband had to fly over from Miami that same day, catch the first flight available to rescue me and my family."

Craig, who ABC Action News found has stolen prams from the entertainment park before, has since handed herself in to police.
