Two 17-year-olds were stopped in the New York branch of the lingerie chain in midtown Manhattan on suspicion of stealing underwear.
On closer inspection, a security guard found the dead baby and called cops who arrested the teens on charges of petit larceny and criminal possession of stolen property.
The young mum was taken to hospital and treated.
According to authorities she told cops she had delivered the baby a day earlier and was carrying the human remains because she didn’t know what to do.
A medical examiner has determined that the baby was born alive and asphyxiated although further test will be carried out to determine exactly what happened.
