Enid, OK (AP) - Police in Enid, Oklahoma, think it's a first: two young sisters are accused of abducting a one-year-old boy and demanding 200-thousand dollars for his return.
The girls are ten and 12. Police allege they sneaked into a neighbor's home early yesterday and took one-year-old Brandon Wells while his mother was asleep. They left a note telling his mother not to call police and to leave the money on her sofa. The note was signed, "the kidnappers."
But the plan began to unravel when the girls' mother saw them with the boy. They told her they found him on the street.
Brandon has been returned to his mother. Sheila Wells says she knows the girls and had banned the ten-year-old from her home recently but isn't saying why.
