Time for the mother to be arrested for breaking SC Law that states you can not leave a baby in a car all alone (even for a minute)......

This should be interesting. But the law is clear. Then she is likely an illegal mexican.

Am glad the baby is ok. But the mother broke some serious laws herself.

I am glad that they found the baby ok. IF she is illegal now is the time to send her back accross the border. She can consider getting her child back a blessing, a gift returned.

This one bothered me. To the point I woke up during the night wishing I could have seen that lady walking or running off with that child and been t here to stop it.

I don't normally let things bother me, but that baby imo could be in danger and it didnt deserve that.

North Charleston, SC - A one month old baby taken from his mother's car in North Charleston is now safe. Lydia Juarez and Miguel Perez-Palma saw their one month old, Angel Miguel Perez for the first time since Monday outside MUSC early Wednesday morning. Earlier on Tuesday, the parents had joined police to plead to the public in helping find Angel Perez who had gone missing Monday.

During a press conference Wednesday morning, Spencer Pryor of the North Charleston Police Department said that they have a suspect, Andrea Samone Walker, 19, of Goose Creek in custody and have charged her with kidnapping.

According to authorities, the suspect was watching the mother and child for sometime and then saw an opportunity to take the child at the post office on Rivers Avenue. Investigators haven't figured out if Walker knew the family or why she decided to take the baby. 4 Interact:

Investigators say they received numerous calls but two calls provided authorities with solid leads with police finding the suspect and the infant at an apartment at Grove Apartments in Summerville around 12:30 a.m. on Wednesday.

Mayor Summey said, "It was truly a team effort to make this happen. Thank you to the media, and the general public who are the life link."

Police retraced Juarez steps on Monday when her child went missing. Juarez and the one month old were recorded on surveillance video at a North Charleston store. Her next stop was the post office.

“She says that she arrived at the post office assuming she was just going to run in just a moment. She left the vehicle running with the child inside the car seat, exited the post office a very short time later,” Pryor said.

Hours after the family and police make their public plea, authorities tell us a tip came in that led them to Angel Perez at a home in Summerville at around 12:30 a.m. Wednesday.

According to police the one month old was found unharmed. As a precaution he was checked out by doctors at MUSC where he was then reunited with his parents.

I am glad the infant is safe and ok but I am getting tired of reading so many stories that, had the parents been sensible, the tragedy would never have occurred. Who the heck could or would leave their infant unattended, plus in a car while it's running??? She might as well have put a sign over her car saying "take my child". STUPID. That's all I can say. Everyone condemns the criminal but rarely says anything about the parents dumb decision.

Sandy I believe this was posted on this board before. Might have been on another forum. There was there share agreeing with the fact that it was stupid. But there were some that disagreed and said they have done it.

I was talking to a young mother yesterday and she said she has left her kids in the car but had her car locked when she did. I just said I hope this incident makes you reconsider this.

I told her I was raised you never leave your kids alone in the car. I was also raised in a town that you probably could but you just didn't.

There was many times I would stop at a gas station and think I would only be in there a minute and its a hassle to take the child out and strap the child back in for only a minute or two. But I always took that child out. I couldn't live with myself if something like what happened to this young lady would have happened to me. If I did the same stupid thing.

This lady was lucky.

Now I read this morning that the lady who kidnapped the baby was at an apartment with two others in Summerville. They weren't charging the other two.. My question is WHY? If these two knew that she had no baby and all of a sudden appeared with one, something was wrong. Let alone there was an amber alert broadcasted all over about this stolen baby.

They in my opinion should be charged for harboring as well.

Amazing as well when 20K is put up as a reward how many phone calls came in. Why couldn't they say something without the reward. It would only have been the right thing to do.
