A North Carolina mother sold her baby daughter for a 1992 Plymouth Laser, according to police and felony indictments filed against her and two codefendants. 45-year-old Alice Todd is accused of swapping her child last year for a vehicle provided by 47-year-old Tina Chavis and her husband 53-year-old Vicenio Romero. All three defendants have been charged with the unlawful sale, surrender, or purchase of a minor. At the time of the baby/vehicle barter, the child was less than a year old. A police investigation was launched in late-July when Chavis brought the child to a hospital for treatment. Since the girl was “presented to medical staff with bruising,” hospital personnel contacted cops and child protective service workers. During subsequent questioning, Chavis said that she had adopted the girl. But she was unable to provide documentation to support that claim. Police in Thomasville eventually identified Todd as the child’s biological mother. Superior Court indictments allege that Chavis and Romero “transferred possession of a vehicle to Alice Todd for physical custody of the minor.” Todd and her codefendants are each being held in the Davidson County jail in lieu of $50,000 bond.
