A New Bedford couple is facing several charges after taking their 2-year old daughter along on a house break in.

Jeffrey Pina and Christie Hoffman were arrested in New Bedford after a neighbor saw the pair robbing a house on Durfee Street and speeding away in a van.

When police pulled the van over a few blocks away they discovered stolen items crammed into Hoffman's pants.

The couple's 2-year old daughter was in the back-seat.

She was placed in the care of her grandmother.
