Even though she could’ve bought whatever she wanted at the store, what she really wanted was something that couldn’t be found on any shelf. The woman approached a mother who was with her child at Walmart and offered to pay the woman $500,000 for something very unusual, officials said. The mother had both an infant and a one-year-old toddler with her when this occurred.

While the mother was using the self-checkout counter, the 49-year-old woman reportedly approached and asked to buy her baby. Rebeca said she loved the baby’s blonde hair and blue eyes, then inquired about how much money the mother would want for the infant.

The mother’s initial reaction was to laugh, thinking it must be a joke. But Rebeca persisted and made it clear she was willing to pay a large sum of money for the baby. In fact, she had $250,000 in her car parked nearby.

Rebeca kept trying to make the purchase even after being told by the mother to stop and leave her child alone. According to an affidavit, this wasn’t Rebeca’s first time attempting such an action; she had been wanting to buy a baby for quite some time now. Fortunately, the mother was able to persuade or fool Rebeca into leaving the store. As the mother and her children left Walmart, Rebeca angrily called out to them from across the parking lot. She offered to pay $500,000 for their blonde-haired, blue-eyed baby boy – saying she was willing to half a million dollars “because she wanted him and she was going to take him.”

When the mother heard this, she called the police immediately to report what had happened. Rebeca was then arrested the authorities and was charged with purchasing a child- something that is considered a third-degree felony where they live.

If convicted, she could spend up to ten years in a state corrections facility and owe a fine of $10,000. Rebeca posted a $50,000 bond and was released from the County Sheriff’s Office after her arrest. She explained to the Sheriff’s Office that she was an attorney and she wanted a child, so she offered to buy one. She stated her goal was to get the mother top selling her child for $500,000.
