A Redwood City woman was sentenced to a month in jail Tuesday for leaving her infant home alone in March while she pillaged a local Target store for more than $600 worth of baby formula, according to the San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office.
Kamara Vasilakos, 25, pleaded no contest in San Mateo County Superior Court in April to felony grand theft and misdemeanor child endangerment after getting caught stealing $620 worth of baby formula from a Redwood City Target store on March 25.
Vasilakos reportedly told police she left her 8-month-old child at home with another family member while her husband was at softball practice, but a welfare check found the baby alone, crying in the crib, according to the district attorney’s office.
A subsequent investigation revealed that Vasilakos “had been on a binge of stealing baby formula and diapers” and then selling them on Craigslist, the district attorney’s office reported.
A judge sentenced Vasilakos to three years of probation and 30 days in county jail. She was ordered to report to jail on Aug. 11.
Some people amaze me. There are parents right now praying for their children to get better or to survive another day and this women leaves her healthy full term baby unattended.
