And she might have gotten away with it if it wasn't for an alert nurse and security guard.
A spokesperson for the DCH Regional Medical Center says Lena Johnson apparently asked a nurse to let her see a specific baby last Thursday. That request made the nurse suspicious and prompted her to call security.
Johnson was denied admission to the secure nursery area after it was determined she had no family relations to the infant.
Johnson is being held on a $25,000 bond and faces second degree kidnapping charges.
