Mom faces conspiracy to commit kidnapping charge

(The News-Star) - According to our partners at The News-Star, a Houston woman is facing charges of conspiracy to commit aggravated kidnapping after an attempt to take her child from the custody of her family.

According to an arrest warrant filed for Amanda Reese, 33, officers with the Monroe Police Department were dispatched to Forsythe Park on Nov. 5 in reference to kidnapping complaint.

Officers responded, and the child was located. Extenuating circumstances prevented a determination on who had custody of the child, so an arrest was not made on the day the incident occurred.

A warrant filed by the sheriff's office in 4th Judicial District court states the guardians of the child visited the sheriff's office two days later requesting a follow up investigation.

The guardians said they were granted primary custody of the three year old on Feb. 22, and their order stipulates the mother is allowed only supervised visitation at the convenience of the guardians.

They agreed to meet with the mother on the day of the reported kidnapping.

According to the warrant, Reese began to act suspiciously and took the child out of view of the guardians. Seconds later the child started screaming. The guardians looked for the child and saw an unknown white man carrying the child over his shoulder jump into a blue Chevy and speed away.

The guardians detained Reese until police arrived. 

Reese was taken into custody on Thursday.
