Stockton Police say a woman took off with her infant daughter that she does not have legal custody of Monday morning during an unsupervised visit.

“She is a drug addict. She might snap. I don’t trust her,” said Linda Holloway.

One month old Tierra Vaughn was in the Child Protective Services office on S. San Joaquin St when Police say Shantesha Fluker took her daughter during an unsupervised visit.

“She had told us last week she had plans to steal that baby,” said Holloway.

Plans so well thought out that family say she had a vehicle waiting for her outside. The family’s biggest concern is where Fluker would take the child.

They say she has no place to live and often stays in a garage or abandoned homes. They also say Fluker has a history of being violent.

While CPS won’t say how Fluker left. They did say it is not their policy to stop parents from taking their kids because it puts the child in danger.

“There was a guard sitting right there,” said Holloway

Holloway is already caring for 2 of Flukers 4 children. She would like someone in the family to take custody of baby Tierra.

Just before 10 p.m., Stockton PD announced that Fluker had been located and arrested, with the baby found unharmed.
