A USA female and her daughter have been arrested immediately after the more mature girl posed as a toddler photographer to gain accessibility to a new child girl, then drugged the mother in buy to steal the toddler.
Juliette Parker, along with her 16-year-old daughter, were arrested in Pierce County Friday.
She told detectives she remembered Parker wiping her fingerprints off things she'd touched and had stolen her house keys.
On the last visit, the suspect and her 16-year-old daughter gave the woman a cupcake and the woman began to vomit and feel numb and drowsy after eating it, police said.
The woman later told police that she believed the perpetrator was a woman who had come to her house pretending to be a newborn photographer.
Since then, officers donated and installed new locks and window guards in the victim's home, the department said.
The photographer said she was trying to build up her portfolio, so the new mother took the photographer up on the offer.
The mother managed to kick Parker and her daughter out, observed her keys had been lacking, and referred to as 911.
They say she may have also used the names Juliette Noel and Juliette Gains.
Police are now asking that anyone else who may have been victimized by this suspect to contact the sheriff's department as soon as possible.
The investigation began on February 5 when the unidentified mother called 911 claiming that she had been drugged.
After seeking treatment at a hospital, the victim reported that she may have been drugged by a woman who came to her home in Spanaway posing as a photographer.
The suspect, of Pierce County, was arrested on multiple felony charges, police said.
The suspect was posing as a photographer to steal a newborn child and raise it as her own, investigators said.
Oh yeah, as I said, it's like the plot of a bad movie.
Parker is expected to have a bail hearing Tuesday after being booked for investigation of second-degree assault and attempted kidnapping.
Juliette Parker "sees two issues at the heart of almost every problem facing Colorado Springs: homelessness and affordable housing", a profile story on her running for Colorado Springs mayor said in March 2019.
