VERNON — Three missing boys are safe and their mother is under arrest after she took them to Maine in violation of a custody agreement, putting three states on high alert.
Police have obtained a warrant for Jackie Ann Morris’ arrest on charges of custodial interference and risk of injury to a minor. She was arrested by police in Bangor, Maine as a fugitive from justice and is in their custody on $250,000 bail, police said Tuesday afternoon.
She’ll be arrested on the Connecticut charges once she is extradited, they said.
“The three children are with her,” Vernon Det. James Grady said after Morris and the boys were found. “They are in good condition.”
The brothers, Ryan, 9, and 7-year-old twins Dylan and Brandan, were turned over to Maine child protection officials. Their father, Jason Lewis, said he was on his way to Bangor Tuesday afternoon to bring them back to Connecticut.
