Santa Ana, CA – Gladys Remigio, 17, and her two accomplices are in police custody after Remigio’s plan to kidnap a baby and present it as her own failed miserably. This after reportedly telling her out-of-town boyfriend that she had been carrying his pup for the last nine months. Remigio was said to have recently moved from New York state to Santa Ana. As she had allegedly told her San Diego boyfriend nine months earlier that she was pregnant with his child, she was under significant pressure to deliver. Bahahhahahahaha. Sorry.
Conveniently, her roommate had a 15-day old baby that would do just fine. Prosecutors say Remigio hired ‘hardcore gang members’ Robert Henry Rodriguez, 19, and Steven Quirino, 20, to snatch the baby during what was to look like a robbery. Remigio and the mother would, then, both be apparent victims.
Prosecutors described Remigio and her partners-in-crime ransacking the house Remigio shared with the mother and stealing a video game console. The mother was said to have been forced into a bedroom at the time.
Quirino and Rodriguez – who prosecutors said were armed with a replica firearm - fled. This, because, they are like… hardcore gang members, and all. What isn’t clear is how the baby got left behind. One news report said that the mother wrestled the baby from Remigio but another said the baby was left in the front yard. Let’s just say the baby burgling didn’t go so well. Interestingly, when police were contacted, Remigio reportedly told them that she knew who one of those two fake-gun-totin’ playstation-thievin’ baby-nappin’ gang-bangin’ summabitches was and gave up his name. Brilliant.
Remigio then reportedly went to San Diego where she told her boyfriend and his family that the baby she had delivered had been kidnapped. It was reported that this got the police in that area on the case, too. When you have hired gang members to snatch a baby, you just can’t have enough police involved in the investigation.
As you have probably guessed, Santa Ana police said that, as soon as the hired help was apprehended, they fingered Remigio as the mastermind. Well, you know what I mean. …and it all came crashing down.
The trio are charged with one felony count each of conspiracy to commit a crime, first-degree residential robbery, first-degree residential burglary with sentencing enhancements for criminal street gang activity. Remigio got an additional charge of attempted kidnapping and the two bangers got a charge of street terrorism – for the fake gun, I am sure.
If convicted on all charges, the maximum sentence for each of them is life in state prison. Prosecutors are asking that Remigio be held on $1 million bail.
This is one of those stories that you read and the underlying fault just jumps out at you. Remigio’s parents should be strung up by their intestines. Immediately. …and while they are dangling from their stretched inards, we can ask: “With all of the ‘Ambers’ and ‘Heathers’ and ‘Brittanys’ in the world today, did you honestly think that you could throw a ‘Gladys’ into the mix and not expect major shit to hit the fan?! C’mon!”Tags: California, Gladys Remigio, Kidnapping, Robbery, Robert Rodriguez, Steven Quirino
