Woman charged with kidnapping baby from church told police she ‘always wanted to be a mother’

| June 22, 2009

CUTLERVILLE — Police say Tabitha Reid visited two other churches Sunday before taking an 11-month-old girl from her own church — a crime that confounded her family and the baby's parents.

Before she allegedly kidnapped the little girl from Kentwood Community Church, Reid pretended to be a nursery attendant at Cutlerville East Christian Reformed Church, arriving an hour before services. But staff and parents quickly became suspicious and called police after the woman abruptly left.

"It was a bizarre situation," Cutlerville East CRC interim Pastor Allen Petroelje said.

"It's been an upsetting experience, especially since we knew later she did indeed abduct a child at another church."
