CHP Quickly Nabs Belmont Woman Accused of Taking Toddler Son Illegally

Belmont police say the mother was in violation of a court order when she took her 2-year-old son.

By Renee Schiavone and Bay City News Service:

California Highway Patrol officers located a Belmont woman and her 2-year-old son in Marin County Thursday evening after she allegedly took him in violation of a custody order earlier in the day, police said. 

At about 4:40 p.m. Belmont police received a report that a 23-year-old Belmont woman had left her home with her son in violation of a court order, according to Capt. Patrick Halleran said. 

Belmont Police initiated an investigation and alerted Bay Area law enforcement officials to be on the lookout for the pair, traveling in the woman's gray 2013 Volkswagen Touareg, according to Halleran. 

At about 6:15 p.m., the California Highway Patrol notified Belmont police that they had found the woman and the boy unharmed in Marin County. 

Investigators are looking into the incident and considering whether the woman should be charged with violating a court order, Halleran said.

"Belmont Police would like to thank the California Highway Patrol for their quick action in bringing a positive outcome to this incident," he added.

Actually this chick was spotted at the Golden Gate Bridge with her 2 year old strapped to her and one foot over the rail. The Golden gate bridge cops were the one who found her and brought her back to safety. The CHP was nothing but a glorified chauffer who drove her ass to the station to get her kid into protective custody. I find it funny how the chp always takes credit for things that the local law enforcement does.
