A woman wanted in California in connection with a kidnapping case was taken into custody Dec. 10 at the Peace Arch border.

According to a news release issued Friday (Dec.16) by U.S. Customs and Border Protection, officers detained a 35-year-old Bakersfield, Calif. resident after she matched a warrant in the National Crime Information Center; a database that shares outstanding warrants among law enforcement agencies.

California officials confirmed they would extradite the woman, the release states.

“In this case, a visitation order was breached and when a child is involved, it’s a serious matter,” area port Director Kenneth L Williams said in the release. “The woman will soon be back in California to face the charges against her.”

The woman was transported to the Whatcom County Sheriff’s Bellingham facility to await extradition.
