Heather Adkins, 32, was arrested at a gas station on an outstanding warrant for an unpaid ticket. The Georgetown Police Department said they initially weren’t aware that Colerain police filed a warrant for Adkins on child endangerment. Following her arrest in Georgetown, Jim Love, spokesman for Colerain police, said Adkins will be returned to Ohio to face the child endangerment charge. She’s held in the Scott County Jail in Kentucky.
Police said the boy is 5 and nonverbal, with autism, and is from Shelbyville, Indiana, roughly 73 miles away from Cincinnati.
