Spring Hill woman charged after driving off with baby


Woman charged after driving off with baby

A Spring Hill woman is accused of driving away with the infant son of her brother's fiancee after dropping the child's mother off at the Dawn Center. According to a Hernando County Sheriff's report, Lisa Conigliaro, 26, of 4479 Augustine Road, was arguing with the mother about having the 7-month-old staying at the shelter. When they got to the shelter, as the mother went to get a stroller from the vehicle's trunk, Conigliaro drove off with the boy, the report states. Investigators located Conigliaro about an hour later and recovered the child, who was not harmed. Conigliaro was arrested on a charge of interfering with child custody and was held at the Hernando County Jail on $2,000 bail.
