Cops: Women Took Baby Along On Crime Spree

OAKLAND (CBS13) – Two Oakland women are expected to face a judge today, on charges of taking a 4-month old baby on a crime spree.

Police say the baby’s mother Raven Stewart and her friend Lache Rodriguez started breaking into cars in Berkeley and Emeryville around noon last Friday.

Officers caught them around 8 p.m. after a security camera captured one of the crimes in Emeryville.

Police sent the women’s pictures to local security firms, and they were spotted trying to return stolen items to a Target store.

“Women don’t tend to be the ones going around doing burglaries in the day time. But what really threw us for a loop is that one of them brought along their 4-month-old baby with them,” said Emeryville Police Officer Brian Head.

The baby was taken into protective custody and later turned over to another family member.
