KENNER, La. — Police are looking for a woman who, after getting caught shoplifting, Tased a mall security guard before abandoning a baby in the parking lot.

It all happened Saturday night at Esplande Mall after an employee at Gymboree watched a woman stealing items from the store as she pushed a baby boy in a stroller.

The employee confronted the woman, along with a security guard, and was in the process of calling her manager when the woman shot the guard with a stun gun and took of running while pushing the stroller.

She was pursued into the mall parking lot where she jumped in a vehicle and fled the scene — leaving the baby in the parking lot.

The 2-month-old baby was taken into protective custody until his mother, Stephanie Johnson, came forward and told police that the woman who abandoned her baby at the mall was the child’s babysitter, a woman named Brittany London.

After being alerted that her name was being trashed on Facebook and Twitter, London went to police herself and informed them that she didn’t know Johnson “at all” and that Johnson may have gotten her name off Facebook.

“She says that she’s friends with a friend who’s friends with me or one of her friends is friends with me. I don’t know how she got to my page,” London said. “I’m definitely deleting my Facebook page. I don’t need that no more.”

For her lie, Johnson was arrested and charged with obstruction, injuring public records and inconsistent statements. Police would also announce they did have a new suspect — Johnson’s 24-year-old sister-in-law, Charbaney Smith. She was the woman who was babysitting the boy that weekend and the woman Johnson was protecting.

  • She should’ve had the baby wait in the car & start the engine when they saw her coming! Amatuer……

  • DangerousKindOfSnark

    “Um, yeah, it was just some chick, so can I get my baby back now?”

    Do you ever feel like your just surrounded by morons? I wonder how often cops feel like that?

  • CT

    OK, I have to be a dick.  I can’t help myself – Charbaney?   Was she going for Chardonnay and she just fucked up the spelling or did she have a lisp and that was what they thought she said? 

  • newstarshipsmell

    Conversely, I wonder how often cops are actually impressed with a perpetrator’s exhibited intelligence. I think it’s safe to assume they feel surrounded by morons every day.

  • JGo555

    SO far, this, abandoning her baby has been the best thing she has ever done as a family member. If these women don’t get their priorities straight after this “incident” I hope that baby never goes back to that family nor even have contact with them. It’s already enough he’s sharing that DNA with them.

    That bitch looks pissed and less than remorseful for being caught.

  • JGo555

    Fuck! CAll the zoo, one of their gorillas escaped & kidnapped a human baby!

    Nothing against black people. EVERYTHING against people that commit crimes while having a child in their care IN THE MIDST of the crime being committed.

  • Lena60

    protecting her sister-in-law who left her child at the mall, and not even pissed about that?I would be kicking her ass from sun rise to sun down.

  • newstarshipsmell

    Keep in mind that the shoplifter isn’t (as far as we know) actually related to the baby…

  • CT

    Which would piss me the fuck off even more so! 

    And don’t you think that two months old is a bit young for a life of crime?  At least wait until the kid is able to run away on their own.  Just to be fair. 

  • annagg

    That’s a man, baby! 

  • curiousalways

    I may be confused, but are you telling me that is a picture of a 24 year old woman?  There are so many crazy bitches in this story it’s hard to keep up, but I would like some clarification.  or some meds……

  • Texas Ranger

    I’m pissed…all these cajun’s and not a single Thibedeaux or Robideaux. Loosiana is goin to shit I tell ya. Another thing, out of all these chicks they couldn’t find a responsible adult except for Grammie?

  • sugarpie

    Crazy bitches.  Sister in law would be getting a serious beat down for putting the baby in danger.  She would be handed to the cops with a nice little bow.

  • understandingoverignorance

    What the fuck is wrong with people to take a child with you when your going to commit a crime…So despicable. 

  • sweatpoo

    Morbid missed the real ‘Meat N Potatoes’ of the story, her full name. Check it: 
    ‘Charbaney Andromeda Myochee Smith’. I couldn’t make that up on my best day.

    Side point: Charbonnet is a prominent New Orleans ‘Creole’ name. The Creature in the above pic does not look to be one iota Creole. I have to assume that her Mama must have liked the name but lacked French spelling skills and spelled it the way that it sounds….Smh!


  • sweatpoo

    Cajuns are typically white. 

  • annagg

    No, they are creole, which is a mix of black, spanish, french and white, and Indian. They a creole couple can have 10 kids, 10 different shades of jet black, down to high yellow, to alabaster. http://youtu.be/2tfVpHYyDcY

  • sweatpoo

    NO, Cajuns are certainly NOT Creole. People who are not from here get the 2 confused often. I love when people who have no clue about a subject, attempt to correct someone having direct knowledge….It’s fabulous!

    Modern Cajuns trace their origins to Nova Scotia, Canadian Maritime provinces, Quebec and Northern Maine. The French dialect comes straight from Canada not to mention La’s French settlers, Dear.  I think I know more about my Creole heritage than you would. But thanks for attempting to “edu-macate” me.

    And yes, Creoles do come in all different shades as do most blacks. We (Creoles) also have the uncanny ability to point each other out of huge crowds, mainly due to the reddish hues under our skins. This Fugly is missing that characteristic. I do notice lighter patches around the eye area, but we refer to that as, liver splotch.


  • Tenbux

    What kind of shoplifting is so fucking urgent that you can’t wait a few hours?!

  • annagg

    I did see this in one of your links:
    Ethnic mixing and alternate origins

    Not all Cajuns descend solely from Acadian exiles who settled in
    south Louisiana in the 18th century, as many have intermarried with
    other groups. Their members now include people with ancestry of British,
    Spanish, German, Italian, Native American, Métis and French Creole
    settlers. Historian Carl A. Brasseaux asserted that it was this process
    of intermarriage that created the Cajuns in the first place.[1]

    Non-Acadian French Creoles in rural areas were absorbed into Cajun communities. Some Cajun parishes, such as Evangeline and Avoyelles,
    possess relatively few inhabitants of Acadian origin. Their populations
    descend in many cases from settlers who migrated to the region from Quebec, Mobile, or directly from France.
    Theirs is regarded as the purest dialect of French spoken within
    Acadiana. Regardless, it is generally acknowledged that Acadian
    influences have prevailed in most sections of south Louisiana.

    And this my explain your hostility: “French Creoles thought many of the arriving Americans were uncouth, especially the rough Kentucky traders”

    It seems as if we are both right, but since I am in Ky, and uncouth, what do I know, except just what I read in your links, and youtube… 😉

  • Wildheart

    Ahhhh….yet another story from my hometown…..my heart swells with pride.

  • Texas Ranger

    Wow…are you tellin me there are NO blacks in the ol’ cajun-woodpile? None, Zip, Zero, Zilch?

  • Tim

    Rarely, but it’s most often a skilled buglar that would gain our “admiration.”  I saw one, where the subject had come in through a skylight, torched a safe and got away with a couple of hundred thousand dollars from a Farm Equipment Dealership.  The fact that the owner of the dealership was such a dick made it all the better.

  • Tim

    She most likely loaned her baby out as a prop, knowing full well that her sister-in-law was going out to shoplift.

    I have seen it done before, when I was a police officer.

  • Wildheart

    Sweatpoo you beat me to it!  BTW “edu-macate” is an official Cajun word lol – my grandPaw Paw (great grandfather) used to call all his great-grandkids “podnah” (buddy) and spread “my-nez” (mayonnaise) on his sandwich. LOL!

    And Ranger, it’s “Thibodaux” and “Robichaux.” 🙂

  • Wildheart

    I’m sure there are some….it’s just not talked about. lol

  • Heather_Habilatory

     *bangs head on desk* She’s named WHAT?!

  • Heather_Habilatory

     And don’t try to get away by river.

  • Heather_Habilatory

     That’s what I was thinking.

    I always feel like Target security watches me more because I always have my son in a stroller in there. I have a big, two seater stroller, even though only one kid is anywhere near stroller age. It was a hand me down from my brother in law and his wife. I always have my purse, his diaper bag, and my work bag in the bottom, and coats. And I’m highly indecisive when shopping, so I spend a lot of time in aisles, looking at stuff. I’m getting stressed out now just thinking about shopping! uuugh!

  • onlyme356

    So this mother blamed it on a facebook stranger to save her sister’s ass? Did she just think the police would not have followed up on that? She couldn’t be creative enough to make up a name? Reminds me of Casey Anthony, making up a fake baby sitter to blame the crime on. And why wouldn’t she be pissed that her sister left her infant behind? Was she stealing baby clothes for her or what?

  • sweatpoo

    Ahhhhh Wildheart,

    You must be a Native! Only a Native would correctly know how to spell those names AND…. how to pronounce, ‘Tchoupitoulas’ without a hint of hesitation. 🙂

    My Paw-Ran still says, “Zank” for ‘Sink’ and my personal fave, “Fixing to make groceries” for ‘Heading out to the grocery store.’

  • sweatpoo

    I can’t recall having seen any, “Back Cajuns” recently. LMFAO! I will make it my personal goal to locate one and while I’m at it, I’ll locate some “Black Rednecks” too. Heehehehe

  • newstarshipsmell

    Yeh, I really wish the news articles had detailed what exactly she was stealing. I’m sure it’s a treasure-trove waiting to be mined for jokes.

  • Wait, they were stealing from Gymboree???

    LOL, the baby must have put her up to it!

  • Wildheart

    Makin’ groceries Schwegmann style! LOL!  Yep born in the Nint’ Wawd and raised in Kennah Bra! 🙂  I’ve been gone for 10 years and I can STILL type Tchoupitoulas without stopping or looking at the keys! 🙂

    Sorry folks…..just a little bit of New Orleans speak from a coupla yats! 😉

  • Wildheart

    Not to be all stereotyping and shit, but the black folks and the cajuns don’t generally get along too well…..of course I’ve been in Phoenix for 10 years now, so maybe all that’s over and done now.
