Baby-Selling at Bus Station?

September 5th, 2007 by flanews

A woman is free after passengers overheard her talking selling a baby at a Greyhound bus station. Tallahassee police are not saying much about their investigation. But as Chris Casquejo tells us, police are wondering if theyve stumbled upon a cross-state baby-selling ring.

Hear it here: Baby-Selling at Bus Station?

Tallahassee Police were called to the Greyhound bus station downtown around 10:30 Monday night. A woman in her 40s and a 5-week-old girl were traveling from Texas to south Florida. Someone overheard the woman talking about selling the baby.
And in this case, I think we avoided a tragedy,” said Tallahassee Police Dept. Officer David McCranie. “We could have had a child who was sold.
Police say the woman and the baby are not related, but are saying little else.
The child appeared to be in okay health. We took the child to a local hospital to be sure of that,” he said.
The infant girl is now in the care of the Department of Children and Families.
The investigation is crossing state lines. Police want to know if theyve stumbled upon a baby-selling ring.
Its from Texas all the way to Florida,” McCranie said. “So were delving into all the different facets that can be taken. Is it a part of a bigger organization? Is it a one-time event?
Many questions, yet few answers. The woman is not in custody. She was released after talking to police.
