COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. - "We try to stop all the activity but we dont allow anything bad around here at all."
A motel owner didn't want to go on camera, but said he was surprised to learn one of his guests allegedly tried to sell a newborn baby.
"We did not know about it. That was a isolated issue."
Collier County Sheriff's Deputies said on Tuesday morning someone approached a woman on Andrew Drive in East Naples and said she knew someone who was trying to sell a baby. Hours later, someone dropped the infant on that woman's doorstep, just feet away from the motel. The infant was in a carrier, next to the carrier was a baby bag that had papers with names written on them. The motel owner can't believe how close his business is to the incident.
"We dont know what theyre doing down the street, what not."
WINK News confirmed Thursday the newborn is in foster care and the Department of Children and Families is looking into this case.
