Baby Theft Mom Posts Bond

A mother who was arrested for trying to stop the state of Florida from taking her infant child is now free on bond.

Melody Robinson posted a $5,000 bond Tuesday night and is now wearing a GPS monitor.

Authorities say last Thursday she walked out of Tallahassee Memorial Hospital with her baby in a bag just before the state was to gain custody of him.

Police say the baby was born with cocaine in his system. The next day, Robinson and the baby were found safe at a relative's house in Blountstown.

She had her first appearance over the weekend. Wednesday, her attorney filed paperwork in court entering a plea of "not guilty."
