HAMMOND, La. (AP) - Tangipahoa Parish sheriff's deputies say
they are looking for a 30-year-old Hammond woman accused of
collecting expenses in an adoption arrangement, then refusing to
turn over the baby.
According to an arrest warrant, 30-year-old Jennifer Harrod
allegedly signed a contract Jan. 15 with an adoption agency to give
up her unborn child for adoption.
As part of the contract, deputies say she was paid for living
and medical expenses until the infant was born.
The Advocate reports deputies obtained a warrant for theft by
fraud for Harrod's arrest.
