“Wednesday was the worst day of my life,” Abby said.
A false home robbery was thwarted after a 4-year-old’s powers of observation kicked in and police officials discovered the babysitter was to blame.
“Investigators say the babysitter made up a story about two armed black men breaking into the Ferndale home,” CBS 12 reports. “The babsitter told investigators one of the suspects looked like the neighbor nextdoor.”
Four-year-old Abby told police, “It wasn’t the right skin color.”
In fact, Abby’s description of the robbers matched the 17-year-old babysitter and two male accomplices who actually plotted to steal a number of electronics and valuables from the home.
