A 4-year-old girl in Washington state helped police solve a home invasion that had been planned by her babysitter.
Police in Ferndale, Washington say that the apartment where 4-year-old Abby’s lives was robbed on Wednesday. The babysitter claimed that two armed black men had committed the crime. One of the men, she said, looked like next-door neighbor Cody Oakes. Oakes was duly handcuffed and placed in the back of a police car.
However, authorities who interviewed Oakes at the scene didn’t think he was the right man and took the handcuffs off. Meanwhile, detectives interviewed Abby, who had seen the whole thing.
