Woman Accused of Trading Baby for Car

By  | 

PUEBLO (AP) - Pueblo police say a 23-year-old woman faces felony charges on suspicion she traded her five-month-old son for cash and to make a payment on a car.

Police sergeant Brett Wilson says the department was notified of the alleged baby swap Monday morning.

Within hours, they had mother Nicole Uribe behind bars and the baby safely placed with a foster home. Authorities say Uribe traded her son to 47-year-old Jose-Juan Lerma and his 27-year-old wife, Irene, for a used Dodge Intrepid.

All three are facing a felony count of trafficking in children and are being held on $50,000 bond.
