    OK - Preteen girls kidnap toddler

    http://www.comcast.net/news/index.js...qh=itn_preteen

    ENID, Okla. - Detectives arrested a 12-year-old girl and her 10-year-old sister for allegedly abducting their neighbor's 1-year-old son and demanding $200,000 for his return.

    Brandon Wells was safe back at home Thursday night, hours after intruders broke into his family's residence and took him while his mother, Sheila Wells, slept, police said.

    "I've been doing this 18 1/2 years, and this is the first time I know of when a 10- and a 12-year-old kidnapped a 1-year-old," said police Capt. Dean Grassino. "It definitely ranks up there with the unusual crimes."

    The siblings, who were not identified because of their ages, are accused of sneaking into Wells' home at about 5:30 a.m., taking Brandon and leaving a ransom note.

    "If you want to see your son again then you won't call police and report him missing and you will leave $200,000 on the sofa tonight and we will return your son back safe," the note read, according to police.

    The note was signed, "the kidnappers."

    I cannot figure out how those girls could be so stupid and hateful. Here's a story from Enid, OK's local paper:

    http://www.enidnews.com/localnews/lo...187004635.html

    Wells said she knew the girls, and the younger one had spent some time at her home. Wells said she went to the girls’ home and took her son back, along the items taken from her home.

    “Her mom said she knew there was something ‘fishy’ about it,” Wells said. The girl was holding her child in her lap when she went to get her baby.

    “She told me she wanted to be his new mommy,” Wells said. “She denied everything. When I walked in the door she was trying to make excuses to her mom.”

    Wells said she had banned the 10-year-old girl from her home a few weeks ago.

    Silly girls. I am glad everything turned out well for the baby and hope the girls get some help.

    If anyone ever kidnapped my 1-year-old, I swear it would be like the Ransom of Red Chief with the perps eventually offering to pay me to give the child back. My 1-year-olds were handfuls!

    If they are like this at 10 and 12, what will they be like at 18 and 20?

    Are they too young to be prosecuted? I'll bet they are. But they obviously have some serious problems. I have a 10 and 12 year old, and they can't even successfully sneak an ice cream!

    Apparently, they aren't too young. The article goes on to say:
    Detectives interviewed the girls and placed them under arrest on suspicion of kidnapping, extortion and first-degree burglary. They were taken to Community Intervention Center.
    I think they are in serious legal trouble. As they should be.

    Yikes... and what, exactly, prompted them to take the child and to ask for $200,000?!?! Either they have been reading something, or watching something, and got what they assumed was a wise idea. Boy were they wrong... and I am one of those moms that thinks that they should be made to serve some kind of punishment... something like probation and a summer full of physical work where they will come to understand: the only reason they are miserable out there working and not having fun with friends is due to the fact that they did something highly stupid.

    Thank goodness this did not turn into a James Bulger case...

    I hope they do have charges filed against them. If they are coming up with these plans at the tender age of 10 and 12, what in the world will they do when they are older?

    Sisters 10, 12 Arrested for Abducting 1-Year-Old Neighbor for Ransom

    Sisters 10, 12 Arrested for Abducting 1-Year-Old Neighbor for Ransom

    ENID, Okla. — Detectives arrested a 12-year-old girl and her 10-year-old sister on a kidnapping complaint on Thursday after they allegedly abducted their neighbor's 1-year-old son and held him for $200,000 ransom.

    Brandon Wells was safe back at home Thursday night, hours after intruders broke into his family's residence and took him while his mother, Sheila Wells, slept, police said.

    "He's had a long day," Sheila Wells said.

    The pre-teen siblings, who because of their ages weren't identified, are accused of sneaking into Wells' home about 5:30 a.m., taking Brandon and other items and leaving a note.

    "... if you want to see your son again then you won't call police and report him missing and you will leave $200,000 on the sofa tonight and we will return your son back safe," police said the note read. The note was signed, "the kidnappers."

    Besides the note, the abductors allegedly took $20, diapers, a stroller and other baby supplies from the home.

    I'm glad nothing serious happened to this baby while he was in their care. You would think ten and twelve yr. old's would know better than to do something so stupid and so dangerous. I hope they do press charges. Like someone else said if they think up this stuff at their age now what will they be doing when they're older if they don't learn their lesson now.

    This isn't a funny matter but what you said made me laugh... That's how it would be with my 2 yr old....

    I am just shaking my head. These two are on a bad path and I hope there is some intervention to change that path.

    I wonder why the mother of the little boy had banned the one girl from her home a few weeks before.

    I hear you - mine were even worse at 2! It gets better though....I promise.

    Yes, I agree these girls needs some serious help. I'd like to know more about what was behind the kidnapping. Doesn't sound like they were going to hurt the little guy, but you never know....

    That's the really scary part to me. If the mother hadn't found him when she did, you never know what lengths they might have gone to in order to try to keep out of trouble.

    It's going to take A LOT more than what I know for me to even consider the possiblity that these young girls are evil.

    But they are definitely silly. And they definitely need some help.
