In another bizarre incident in the long list of bizarre incidents that have graced the halls of Walmart, a woman offered to buy another woman’s baby while shopping in the megastore.

The potential buyer, Rebecca Taylor, 49, was arrested by the Crockett Police Department (CPD) for allegedly attempting to purchase a baby for $500,000 on January 13th, and is being held for for sale or purchase of a child, and was released from custody on $50,000 bond, KETK reported.

The mother, who remained unidentified, was with her baby and 1-year-old at a Walmart in Crockett, Texas, which is located just outside of Houston. According to the police affidavit filed by CPD Lieutenant Ahleea Price, the mother was in the self checkout lane and was approached by Taylor, who commented on her son’s blond hair and blue eyes and asked how much he cost.

The report stated that the mother thought the woman was just joking around in an “aww, cute baby” sort of way. Yet Taylor was allegedly insistent, saying she had $250,000 in her car, which was her initial offer, according to Lt. Price’s police report:

“[Taylor] began commenting on her son’s blonde hair and blue eyes. She asked how much she could purchase him for. [The mother] tried to laugh this comment off, thinking Taylor was joking. Taylor told her that she had $250,000 in the car and she would pay that much for him. [The mother] told her no amount of money would do.”


At this point, Taylor allegedly became agitated and insistent, prompting the mother to tell her to stay away from her son. Taylor allegedly commented that she’d been looking forward to buying a baby for some time, according to the mother’s report. In addition, there was also another woman present alongside Taylor, according to the mother’s account. This second woman asked for the child’s name, but the mother did not share this information.

According to the report, Taylor allegedly knew the child’s name somehow anyway and began calling it out. The mother waited for the two women to leave Walmart, then left the store herself. Taylor was allegedly outside and reportedly began to scream at the mother, now offering $500,000 for the baby, saying she “wanted him and she was going to take him,” according to the police affidavit.

The mother then locked her children in her car, while Taylor allegedly stood behind a black SUV next to the mother’s vehicle, reportedly repeating her offer of $500,000 for the child, before getting into the SUV and leaving.

After Lt. Price saw the footage from Walmart’s security tapes, which seemed to corroborate the mother’s story, she went to Taylor’s residence to question her, and was brusquely turned away, according to the officer’s affidavit: “[Taylor] told me that she doesn’t like thieves, then she stated I could speak with her attorney and to get off her ‘precipice.’ She slammed the door shut.”

With the information she had, Price was then able to secure a warrant for Taylor’s arrest. As of writing, there is no word on whether or not the other woman is also sought by authorities.
