Grandmother arrested for taking baby out-of-state without permission

FORREST CITY, AR (KAIT)-  A grandmother from Texas will soon be back in Region 8 to face charges for taking a three-month-old to the state without her mother's permission.

According to Forrest City Police, Sade Henderson of Madison reported her daughter had been taken on January 7th.  She told police Carolyn Morris was allowed to take the baby to a funeral service in Forrest City.  After the service was over, however, Henderson learned from other family members that Morris left with the baby and headed to Mesquite, Texas where she lives.

A warrant was issued for the arrest of Carolyn Morris for Interference with Custody, a class "C" felony.  Officers from the Mesquite Police Department arrested Morris during a traffic stop before she arrived at her home.

Morris is being held by Texas authorities and according to Forrest City Police Chief Edward Reynolds, she should be extradited back to the city sometime this week for arraignment.

The baby was turned over to Child Protective Services until her mother could once again take custody.
