VICTORVILLE, CA – A man doing some little girl shopping was arrested after he snatched a 4-year-old girl from a cell phone store.

The incident happened last Friday as a mother was inside a Victorville cell phone store holding a young child while her 4-year-old stood nearby.

As you can see in the below surveillance video, the little girl is standing by the front door when  24-year-old Terry Ransom simply reaches in and drags the girl out by her arm.

He doesn’t get far as the girl’s mother jumped into action faster than I do when there’s free cocaine on a coffee table.

Ransom lost his grip on the girl and ran away as the mother brings the crying girl back inside the store and comforts her.

Outside, Ransom reportedly sat in traffic laughing before getting up and running away. Bystanders tackled him and held him at the scene until police arrived.

Ransom, who was possibly under the influence of drugs, was evaluated at a hospital before being booked for kidnapping and child cruelty.…

sherri-papiniREDDING, CA – A 34-year-old mother-of-two went missing during an afternoon jog last Wednesday and her family fear she was abducted.

When Keith Papini returned home from work on Wednesday he found that his wife, Sherri, and their two children were not home.

When she would not answer her cell phone and he learned their children had not been picked up from daycare, Keith used the Find My Iphone app to locate Sherri’s phone near the intersection of Old Oregon Trail and Sunrise Drive in Redding.
