Justin Jones Kendra Branch

A Robbins police officer and his girlfriend were arrested and charged with disorderly conduct after they fabricated a story about an abandoned baby. Officer Justin Jones, 23, and Kendra Branch, 25, were taken into custody on Sunday.

Police say a woman initially reported finding an abandoned baby boy while out for a walk near the 3700 block of West 214 Place in Matteson, IL on Thursday evening.

The woman told authorities that the baby was buckled into a car seat behind a dumpster in a wooded area. The child was shivering, and wearing a soiled diaper and wet socks. The baby was transported to a hospital to be treated for exposure and a fever.

The woman's story quickly unraveled when police identified her as Jones's girlfriend, Kendra Branch.

Police also identified the mother of the child as Jones's ex-girlfriend -- and Jones was the baby's biological father.

Both Jones and Branch initially denied knowing the baby. Jones and Branch lived together in an apartment near where the baby was found.

Police said the two made up the story to get the biological mother in trouble with DCFS “out of spite.”

According to the complaint, the couple is being held "accountable for filing false charges and creating an atmosphere of discord within the community, as well as wasting valuable resources."

The child remains in the custody of child protective services. The agency is conducting an independent investigation to determine where the child will be placed.

  • Shaun M

    This is such a crazy and bizarre story. Why harm the your blood to get even with the mother?Smh.Evil is too good of a word for them!

  • Ms.Vanilla

    There should be a charge called " special stupid circumstances" and should get extra 4 yrs added to sentence.

  • Wreckognize Game

    Does the mother have known issues for them to be considering where the child should be placed? Men are really stupid when it comes to kids. If you don't want them, don't fuk, don't fuk without a condom or vasectomy. Disgusting ?

  • Wreckognize Game

    I'm laughing with you because that Bih look like Mannie too!!

  • Nala Shakur

    SOooo...the mom is where?

  • monique

    Why is the child still in custody and being placed in a home? the story was found to be untrue, so mom should be with her child, right?

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    That's the confusing part.

  • Justlooknout

    Unfortunately, CPS acts on lies. I have seen it first hand. I could no longer work in that system. Shameful how they treat the good parent's.

  • Justlooknout


  • Alicia.Ashe

    Dummies. Still not understanding why the child isn't back with the mom.

  • Renee26

    They must've found something out about her that's making them investigate

  • Renee26

    They trifling as hell to do that to the baby... another nut job with a badge

  • Genia W-m

    That's awful! I guess visitation will be supervised from now on for him without the girlfriend present.

  • Justlooknout

    Because they believe numb nuts uptop.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    I remember seeing this on the news, they said the child looked like he was cared for. Smh. Give her back her child.

  • SouthernGirlAZWorld

    I just fell out

  • nick c

    I concur I had to sue them if differs by state some are completely hands off while others will try to have you shot if you even accused of yelling at your kids.

  • nick c

    There is a lot parents on both sides that at some point dont want the kid anymore and make dumb choices that gets them locked up.

  • Quitedeliteful


  • nick c

    If anyone is wondering why DCFS did not return the child to the mother this is a comment tactic by these fools. Anytime they find out your child got hurt in any way and YOU didnt report it or know that the person that was with your kid is stupid or abusive they will try to nail you with neglect. It could be the other parent, it could be school, friends house whatever. If the child cannot communicate they will claim you should have vetted the person if they can communicate they will claim your children must not be comfortable telling you things, neglect. Its really dirty never trust CPS folks.

  • nick c

    CHILD NEGLECT, DCFS and CPS will try to pin that on her saying she should have known he was crazy. I seen it a million times

  • Quitedeliteful

    I just can't imagine what is wrong with these two. This guy is really too stupid to be a police officer.

  • Malai

    Did y'all hear about the lil white boy that killed his mom in her sleep because she wouldn't let him keep a puppy? SMH

  • Justlooknout

    I am certain this all has to do with child support. Him.not wanting to pay.

  • Jayne Van Buren

    I can't believe SR isn't running with that one. She likes to tell the most horrific stories and show the most disgusting pictures...oh wait...that's only if the people involved are black. Talk about being KING CRAB...

  • MRiGOThim

    smdh ole dumb ass

  • NicoleZee

    These niggas are dumb. If they don't make that much money, they won't have to pay that much anyway. Dumb ass dudes. Most of them can only pay $200 or $300 a month or even much less, which is nothing, but they still complain and get upset. For what??? Ignorance is bliss for some.

  • NicoleZee

    Mental illness!!!! And people like them get to roam freely everyday. They need to be permanently placed inside an insane asylum. Dumb asses!

  • SouthernGirlAZWorld

    Explain that again please

  • Queen B

    But why the child cant go back with the biological mother?

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    So the mother can't get her hair and nails done and spend the money on herself let them tell it!!

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    I'm thinking maybe that's why they didn't give the child back to mom yet maybe they investigating how he had the child in the first place to do all this. ????? This is me just trying to make sense outta this mess!! PPL start looking into laws in your state for certain things I was told a long time ago that social services has to go to court to get custody of your child in order to have rights which means until they do so you are suppose to be able to get your child. Again check your local state laws but ain't no way they would have my child and I didn't do anything wrong. Heck sometimes child end up dead or abused in the care of social services and since he a baby they want he so they can make money off that child by having him in the care of the state.

  • NicoleZee

    Girl, I remember going to child support court. There were men down there getting mad because they had to pay a couple of hundred bucks a month. The f*ck??? That is chump change. Kids are expensive! These sorry ass men are disgusting. As along as the child is being taken care of, I don't get why they complain. Oh, but half these dumb niggas don't even know if the mom is taking care of the child because they're not even in the child's life. SMDH! People who have kids and don't give a shit about them belong in the same pit of hell that the rapists and child molesters will end up in. Sick and sad. I say execute all these pieces of shit! The world would be a much better place!!!!

  • NicoleZee

    They both look like they sniff glue. Dumb ass niggas. Sad, just sad!

  • Karla E

    Looks like the bio mother has had issues with dcfs before. Otherwise, the baby would have gone immediately back to the mother. This cop was playing that card to make the situation worse for the mother but it backfired with felony charges and will be getting fired . Worlds dumbest cop....

  • Pamela

    She looks like she only bathes ONCE a month. Ewww...

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    Oh yea the main ones that ain't around are the main ones mad about child support like I said in a discussion before if you only pay 300 a month and I'm providing EVERYTHING good clothing shelter and activists for the child and that 300 hit the bank guess what you paying me back only a small percentage of what I've done all month so if that 300 hit the bank even if I do get my hair done or pay my car note guess what that car gets your child around and I deserve something nice for myself for being a full time parent and attending to all the needs of the child!! They screaming get child support cards that can only be used st certain places and spent on children stuff only like that's hurting somebody. I'm so glad I didn't have to go through no BS like that with my child's father

  • morenYAHdelsur

    DCFS is crooked af in Louisiana. I can only assume the same for others. I once read they get $$ for the kids they 'collect.'

    An associate of mine has been battling with them for a few years. Her son was placed with her mother WHO IS A KNOWN ADDICT! ????? The grandmother does not properly feed or clothe this kid. She does not care about his academic well-being at all. She's despicable.

    I don't understand taking a kid away from a decent parent and putting them in harms way. If something happens, what will they say?!

  • Dowoop

    Good lord with these kids.

  • Dowoop

    I think its......If you leave your child with someone and they wind up with DCFS, its your fault for leaving them with a person that wasn't capable of taking care of them so they will charge you with neglect.

  • Dollmeshia Dee-Dee Clark

    Right!!!! Like DNA wouldn't show that he's the father of the child "he doesn't know"...... dumb a??

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!


  • ?Royalty?

    Why is DYFS still holding the child if it was established that the guy did it out of spite?

    Oh! This happened in Robbins, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago! Now, I understand the extreme stupidity!

    There are too many predators working in the criminal justice system. Mr. Dumb-dumb McFathead is a parole officer? Can you imagine all the ways he misused his position?

  • Carrington

    I think they should revisit every case this clown has ever been involved in. Clearly he's a bit on the stupid side. GTFOH... how dumb do you have to be to believe that once the mother was located and she finds out that her baby was "found" by the girlfriend of the babies father's girlfriend that all of this would come out?
    Really? Her baby is gone and she's not going to say to police, "he's supposed to be with his deddy... a police officer - how did he get upon the forest?"? WTF? And the girlfriend is equally dumb to go along with it.
