Grandma drops baby off at wrong address
(5/04/06 - OMAHA, NE) - What started out as a possible child abandonment case in Omaha on Wednesday turned out to be a misunderstanding, police say.
Police received a call from a woman who said another woman she didn't know had driven up to her home, handed her a baby boy and a diaper bag and left.
It turns out, the woman was the baby's grandmother and thought she was dropping the baby off at day care, but she had the wrong address, officers said.
Police said the incident was a misunderstanding, and no charges will be filed.
The infant was placed in foster care for several hours until his mother showed up at police headquarters Wednesday afternoon after seeing pictures of her baby on television news.
