Bonnie Sweeton Apparently Faked Her and Her Daughter's Abduction
Some folks might not admit it; however, domestic relations problems appear to be at the root of another instance of socially unacceptable behavior. Bonnie Sweeton, a 38 year old Pennsylvania woman, called 911 to report that she and her daughter had been abducted. It apparently was not true. Bonnie is now charged with making a false report and identity theft. Police found Bonnie and her 9 year old child, Julia Rakoczy at a Disney resort in Florida.
Bonnie Sweeten had originally told the police that she and her daughter were kidnapped after two men in a Cadillac rear-ended her sport-utility vehicle in Upper Southampton. She then said that they were being held in the trunk of the Cadillac. Sweeten was arrested at Disney in Orlando on Wednesday. Sweeten awaits extradition. Alleged kidnap victim found.
Sweeten's daughter is in state custody until her biological father picks her up. Sweeten withdrew about $12,000 and obtained a driver's license from a co-worker to buy airline tickets. She and her daughter then traveled under false names. Police spokes person Henry said, "We believe there were some domestic problems." Surprise. Surprise!
