Texas woman arrested after offering $500K for baby in Walmart checkout line

A Texas woman was arrested last week after offering a mother hundreds of thousands of dollars for one of her children.

According to Click2Houston, Rebecca Taylor, 49, approached a mother at a Walmart checkout line in Crockett, about 120 miles north of Houston, and started remarking about the woman’s two children who were in a shopping cart.

Taylor allegedly offered the woman cash for her infant son and the woman refused. Taylor reportedly started yelling and increased her offer to $500,000 and said she would abduct the child.

The woman got away from Taylor and contacted police. Taylor was charged with sale or purchase of a child, a third-degree felony, and was released on $50,000 bond on Thursday.
