Girls, 10, 12, Kidnap Baby For Ransom

‘A pair of pre-teen sisters are accused of kidnapping an infant in Enid on Thursday, police said.

The 10-year-old and 12-year-old girl allegedly broke into a neighbor’s home Thursday morning about 5:30 a.m., taking a 1-year-old baby while his mother, Sheila Wells, slept, police said. A ransom note was left. According to police, they were accused of kidnapping for extortion and first-degree burglary.

Officers said the girls not only took the baby boy, Brandon Wells, from a crib in which he was sleeping, they also took assorted baby items, $20 in cash and left a ransom note telling the mother of the baby that “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 was signed “the kidnappers.”‘
