Police authorities reported a disturbing incident involving a 49-year-old woman named Rebeca at her local Walmart. Her shopping trip took an alarming turn when she approached a mother with an infant and a one-year-old toddler and made an unconventional offer.
While the mother was occupied at the self-checkout counter, Rebeca approached and asked to purchase her baby. She expressed admiration for the infant’s appearance, particularly the blonde hair and blue eyes. At first, the mother assumed it was a joke and laughed it off, but Rebeca persisted, revealing she had $250,000 in her nearby car and was serious about the proposition.
Despite the mother’s stern request to leave her child alone, Rebeca continued her attempts to negotiate the purchase. It was later revealed that this was not Rebeca’s first attempt at such an action, as she had been seeking to buy a baby for some time.
Fortunately, the mother managed to convince or distract Rebeca, and they left the store. However, Rebeca called out to them angrily from the parking lot, offering $500,000 for their blonde-haired, blue-eyed baby boy and expressing her intention to take him.
Deeply alarmed by this encounter, the mother promptly contacted the police to report the incident. Subsequently, Rebeca was arrested and charged with attempting to purchase a child, classified as a third-degree felony in their jurisdiction.
If convicted, she could face up to ten years in a state corrections facility and a fine of $10,000. After her arrest, Rebeca posted a $50,000 bond and was released from the County Sheriff’s Office.
During questioning, she claimed to be an attorney and confessed that she wanted to buy a child, offering the mother $500,000. Her goal, as she stated, was to convince the mother to sell her child for the specified amount.
