Micah Ashley Alford, 26, from League City, Texas was apprehended at Ritz Cabaret, where she was applying for a job, investigators said. She had a felony warrant for her arrest on charges of child endangerment and abandonment.
Galveston County Precinct 8 Deputy Constables said they received information that Alford delivered a baby five days ago, which she eventually confirmed. Deputies said Alford's probation was revoked when she failed a drug test when she was 5 months pregnant.
When deputies asked Alford where her baby was, she had no idea, officials said. Shortly after police put out an alert for the baby, two women called saying they had him. They told investigators another woman gave them the baby and he had no milk or diapers at that time, but they went and bought those items.
Officers had been searching for the newborn for four days. Records show that this is Alford's fourth child and that the other three were taken away by child protective services. Her bond has been set at $100,000.
