Youngstown woman uses baby in forced entry

Posted: Updated:
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - A Youngstown woman is charged with burglary after using a baby to allegedly gain entry into a home. 

Police say 30 year old Tammy Vanfossan knocked on the door of a First Street home in Youngstown while holding a baby.

When a woman answered, Vanfossan asked her for $40 to purchase baby formula. The homeowner refused, so Vanfossan forced her way into the home. 

Vanfossan left and later returned and tried to unlock a fence to get into the home. That's when police arrested her and had family members pick up the baby. 

Vanfossan is being held in Mahoning County Jail on $55,000 bond.
