Bettis was charged with larceny over $1,500 and conspiracy.

Detectives found about 800 boxes of the stolen diapers during a raid Thursday at a Providence storefront, but 1,200 boxes are still missing, said Rhode Island State Police Maj.

A second man, Damon Martin, 41, of Coventry, was also arrested and charged with larceny over $1,500, receiving stolen goods, and conspiracy.

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.

A warrant has been issued for a third person. He instead allegedly sold them once he got to Rhode Island and told the truck's owner he was not making the delivery and that the truck could be picked up in West Greenwich.

A raid conducted at a vacant storefront in Providence, Rhode Island, Feb. 16, 2017 turned out to be connected to the theft of $90,000 worth of diapers. When the owner arrived, the truck was empty.

"There's a black market for pretty much anything that has to do with babies", explained Imm.

Each box contained 100 diapers and sold for approximately $40.

The windows to the store were covered in newspapers.
