Buckeye baby, mother who took him found after Amber Alert issued
BUCKEYE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) — A Buckeye baby is safe after he was taken by his biological mother and three other suspects, which sparked an Amber Alert on Friday. Police say 9-month-old Raylon Zahir Tucker was found safe and healthy. According to officers, the baby’s uncle, 19-year-old Exzavior Jones, and the baby’s biological mother, 19-year-old Jessica Jones Angulo, turned themselves in to Phoenix police. Police say they are still searching for a woman described as a person of interest, but there are no suspects on the loose.
At around 12:30 a.m., Angulo and three people broke down the door of a Buckeye home in the area of Miller and Baseline Roads, according to Carissa Planalp with the Buckeye Police Department. They attacked the people inside, which included Raylon’s biological father. Police say Jones fired his gun, but no one was hit. They grabbed Raylon before driving off, officers said.
Investigators said they found one of the attackers, 36-year-old Jessica Howard Davila before the Amber Alert was issued on Friday afternoon. Planalp said she’s the mother of Angulo. The suspects’ vehicle involved in the abduction was also found at a home in Goodyear. “We understand that there’s an ongoing custody dispute between the father and the mother,” said Planalp.
