Baby kidnap suspect goes to prison for investigation

A judge has remanded the suspect in a baby kidnapping case to prison for three months investigation.

The Poder Judicial identified the woman by the last name of  Ureña.

This is the case of the 2-month-old child who went missing at the Coca Cola bus station at midday Tuesday.

The Fuerza Pública confirmed press accounts Wednesday that the baby’s mother handed off the child to an acquaintance because she had to go to the bathroom. There is a video of the event that police used to find the baby.

When the mother emerged from the bathroom she contacted police nearby because she could not find the woman with the baby.

Law officers tracked down the baby that night and recovered the child in the Llano section of San Miguel de Desamparados. A motive had not been provided.
