PHOENIX - A woman has been sentenced to two years of probation after she allegedly tried to give her baby away at a Valley gas station.
Rozenna Luna, 37, was charged with one count of child abuse after the May incident.
Police said officers were called to a convenience store near 23rd Avenue and Bethany Home Road after a woman called to say she couldn’t care for her 6-month-old daughter any more.
Witnesses told officers the woman was trying to give the baby away for free.
The people who were approached by Luna told a cashier inside the store who then called police.
The baby was placed in Child Protective Services custody but later returned to her father.
