— A Vir­ginia woman wanted for kid­nap­ping her chil­dren — ages 11 and 16 — be­cause she no longer has le­gal cus­tody of them was cap­tured on In­ter­state 95 near Elkton on Thurs­day, ac­cord­ing to Mary­land State Po­lice.

The sus­pect, Carshena Chi­effo, 35, of Buck­ing­ham, Va., was nabbed by an MSP trooper, af­ter the duty of­fi­cer at the JFK Bar­rack near Per­ryville had re­ceived a be-on-the-look­out bul­letin for a blue Nis­san pickup truck with a spec­i­fied Vir­ginia li­cense plate about 1 a.m. Thurs­day, po­lice re­ported.

The alert came from a Bal­ti­more County dis­patcher, po­lice said.

The Bal­ti­more County Po­lice De­part- ment, who had been in con­tact with Vir­ginia au­thor­i­ties, re­layed that Chi­effo had taken her chil­dren with­out per­mis­sion and that she was trav­el­ing north on I-95, po­lice added.

MSP troop­ers as­signed to the JFK Bar­rack spot­ted the truck and stopped it near Elkton, where they took Chi­effo into cus­tody, po­lice re­ported. As of Thurs­day night, in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing the time of Chi­effo’s ar­rest was un­avail­able.

The two chil­dren, who were in­side the truck, were un­harmed, ac­cord­ing to po­lice.

Troop­ers filed a fugi­tive charge against Chi­effo, who re­mains in cus­tody and is await­ing ex­tra­di­tion back to Vir­ginia, po­lice re­ported.

As of Thurs­day night, troop­ers were con­tin­u­ing to as­sist Vir­ginia au­thor­i­ties with their in­ves­ti­ga­tion.
