CALIFORNIA (WTVR) - Security cameras caught the woman entering the hospital dressed like a nurse.

She then entered a room with a mother and her child. Next, the woman allegedly told the baby's mother to take a shower. That's when she grabbed the infant and put it in a tote bag.

When she left the room, the child's electronic bracelet sounded an alarm that put the building on lock down until the woman could be located and arrested.
