The police have indicated that based on their investigations, they have reasons to believe that the recent stealing of a baby from the Victoria Jubilee Hospital in downtown Kingston was part of an organised child-stealing ring.
On January 9, the child’s mother left the baby on her bed at the hospital to take a shower. On her way to the shower, she reportedly passed a woman inside the ward looking on the outside through a window, who engaged her in a conversation.
On her return to the ward, the mother discovered that both her baby and the woman were missing.
For the police, the pieces of a big puzzle have been slowly coming together.
“It’s early days yet, but our investigations have opened up a whole can of worms,” said Howard Chambers, the Superintendent in charge of the Kingston Western Police Division in which the Victoria Jubilee Hospital is located.
