WOODSTOCK, Ga. (AP) -- Police say they've arrested a man and woman who stole a trailer full of cribs from a nonprofit group that were going to be donated to new mothers.

WXIA-TV Friday reported 44-year-old Carl James Bourque, of Marietta, and 31-year-old Bobbie Jean Colston, of Woodstock are being held in the Cobb County Adult Detention Center on felony theft charges. Police are looking for a third suspect, but have not released details on their identity.

An employee at The Hope Center in Woodstock reported the trailer missing Wednesday, and authorities arrested the couple Thursday evening.

A tipster saw the stolen trailer parked at a hotel in Kennesaw and called Cobb County Police. Authorities say two off the five cribs have been recovered.

Woodstock is about 30 miles north of Atlanta.
