The Public Ministry announced that the woman who allegedly stole a baby from San Miguel Archangel Hospital Sunday pretended to be pregnant for eight months. At a press conference, Prosecutor Rafael Baloyes reported that three people have been arrested, included that woman. Sunday morning, the baby was kidnapped from the maternity ward of the hospital. Fourteen hours later, after an intense police operation, the child, who was two days old, was found in an apartment in Rio Abajo. The prosecutor said that, according to preliminary investigation, the woman, a Panamanian citizen, deceived relatives and neighbors during the past eight months, saying she was pregnant. Baloyes said the woman purchased baby clothes and went to medical facilities for checkups. The alleged pregnancy was repeatedly supported by the woman's partner. According to the prosecutor, the couple kidnapped the baby from the maternity ward during a period when few staff were on duty. The authorities reported that detainees have no relation to the baby's mother. Hospital officials have since reinforced security.
