Three Michigan teenagers have been charged with conspiring to kidnap two twin 14-day-old infants from their mother. The kidnapping incident triggered an AMBER Alert early Monday morning.
Investigators said the 14-day-old twins were kidnapped from their mother at a hotel in Livonia on Sunday. The babies were surrendered to the Detroit police shortly after they issued an AMBER alert on Monday.
Police have charged 23-year-old Shantell Re-Azia Jones, 18-year-old Curtis Lee Slay, and 19-year-old Davion Demetrius Sherman Chandler. According to WDIV, they have been charged in connection with the reported kidnapping.
Prosecutors have accused the teenagers of befriending the 30-year-old mother through social media in order to abduct her twins. Evidence suggests that the teenagers offered to a*sist the mother in order to gain access to the twins and abduct them.
According to WDIV, the mother was getting a drink from a vending machine at the hotel when the babies were taken.
On Tuesday, the Detroit, Michigan Police took three suspects into custody. There is also a fourth suspect who is 16 years old, but she has not been formally charged.
