Carlina White’s kidnapper, Ann “I Take Babies” Pettway, Turns Herself In To Authorities

- By Bossip Staff

After a week or so of running Ann Pettway couldn’t take the pressure anymore and turned her punk-a** in to the FBI. Now its just a matter of what kind of penalty she’ll get for the baby snatching.

“The FBI notified us shortly after 1:30 p.m. that Pettway turned herself in, and she’s now in the custody of the FBI. It is our understanding she was alone when she [surrendered],” said Bridgeport Detective Keith Bryant.

Pettway used Facebook to inform officials that she wanted to give up, sources told CNN.

At some point, she also placed a call to authorities from a relative’s house in Stratford, sources told The Post.

Once in custody, Pettway was immediately arrested on the kidnapping rap. She was set to be held overnight in Connecticut before heading to federal court in Manhattan today, said Manhattan US Attorney Preet Bharara.

White’s biological father, Carl Tyson, was elated at the news of Pettway’s surrender — but still at a loss to understand how anyone could snatch a newborn from her real parents.

“I would just love to speak to her, to see her and talk to her and ask her, ‘Why?’ That’s all I want,” he told People magazine.

Yes sir, we concur. We’d ALLlike to know why the hell this crazy b*tch thought it would be ok to just take someone else’s baby? As if the baby was a lost wallet and everyone would just give up looking and questioning. Hope they throw the book at this heffa…

    I wonder what kind of feelings do Carlina have for her. I mean the lady did raise her for 23yrs…shes all she knows. I wonder does she even want her in jail. This is so confusing and sad.

    • that damn sh#$ disturber

  • yoli

    I wonder if she lied to a man about being pregnant….

    • Miss U Much MJJ....Lovely1

      I read that the kidnapper’s boyfriend was a big time drug dealer in CT. She was pregnant and lost the baby. She didn’t want to lose the baby so she kidnapped Carlina.

  • I Know Everything

    Stolen girl is cute. The kidnapper, not so much. Thats probably how she figured out she was stolen.

    This whole story is disturbing! Ann is/was my neighbor and we as a community are shocked! I’ve never felt so Duped!

  • Tray

    She’ll do about 2 years. Only drug dealers and serial killers get life in this country. The guy who kidnapped Stephen for 10 years and then a kid name timothy only did 4 years in jail. He got out and did the same thing.

  • tommykimon

    Sad story and I wonder what this young lady feelings toward the woman that raised her whole life. This is a sad situation.

  • goldengirl

    We all really dont know HOW this woman came to receive this girl, whether by kidnap, or what. Maybe the woman herself was involved in something beyond her own control who knows. (Im reaching I know, shut up). What DOES need to be pointed out is how the GRACE of GOD protected this young woman all these years and brought her back to her loving family. I would like to know the family’s religious background. Talk about a testimony for Sunday service! Praise GOD!

  • Pinkcookiegoodies

    I’m on the fence with this one. I feel that although the she raised that girl into adulthood she kidnapped her from her biological parents and should be punished mildly if none at all. This is a very touchy subject.

    then why are you here and why are you commenting. Must be just as intersted as the rest of us. #dumberthanaboxofrocks

    @ !!!!

    I am with you. That woman needs to go to jail for life. Yeah she didn’t kill the child but that was because she was trying to p@ss her off as hers. Since she lost the baby and clearly no one knew, she plotted and planned to do it which makes it first degree. Regardless of if she plotted on this particular couple or not there was still a plan created. also, she turned a couple’s life upside down for no reason and now is turning this girl’s life crazy. Yes I am sure the young lady is happy to be reaquainted with her biological parents but as some of you have said the nutcase is all she knew. Throw the daxn book at her.
