“Selvarani was attempting to sell the baby for ` "1 lakh, but there were no takers. She then brought down the price to `30,000. Had we not arrested her, she would have sold the child,” said a senior police official.  Selvarani was charged under the provisions of kidnapping and remanded to judicial custody."
"It will make a significant difference in public safety," Bramsen said. "This conviction and this sentence ensures that he will never get out."
..."The caller was able to provide a detailed description of the vehicle as well as license plate information for the vehicle," the release said. "The caller indicated that their 3-year-old daughter had been playing within a fenced yard at the residence when the caller observed a blue car stopped by the fence. "The caller indicated that as they stepped onto the porch of the residence to call to the child, the driver of the car observed them and rolled up the window of the vehicle and drove away from the residence," the release states. The Rosepine Police Department and the Vernon Parish Sheriff’s Office responded to the area and located Casey Brown, 32, in a vehicle matching the description provided by the complainant, the release states. "Upon further investigation it was determined that Casey Brown was wanted on outstanding warrants through the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office," Craft said in the release. "Brown was immediately taken into custody and transported to the Vernon Parish Sheriff’s Office." The Rosepine Police Department made contact with the complainant regarding the matter, and according to police, while the officer was speaking with the complainant, the 3-year-old female "disclosed to the officer that the man wanted to take her somewhere." The Rosepine Police Department contacted detectives with the Vernon Parish Sheriff’s Office, and a forensic interview was conducted with the child "who again disclosed that the man wanted to take her somewhere," the release alleges. "Brown was interviewed by detectives and admitted to using methamphetamine," the release alleges. Brown was arrested and booked into the Vernon Parish Jail on the following charges from Calcasieu Parish: one count of Failure to Register as a Sex Offender, one count of Unlawful Use of Social Media, one count of Improper Use of Registration and License and one count of Driving Under Suspension. "Brown was also charged with one count of Attempted Simple Kidnapping regarding the allegations in Vernon Parish in that he is alleged to have attempted to entice a child away from their residence," the release states. No bond has been set at the time of the release. The investigation is ongoing."
