Woman stopped at border on kidnapping warrant

The Associated Press

A Florida woman awaits extradition and two boys have been turned over to Texas Child Protective Services after U.S. Customs and Border Protection detained the woman officers at the Hidalgo International Bridge on an outstanding kidnapping warrant.

CBP spokesman Eduardo Perez says agents stopped 25-year-old Iris Sandoval of Gibsonton, Fla., Monday when a database revealed the November 2008 parental kidnapping warrant from the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office.

Hidalgo Police Capt. Robert Vela says the boys, ages 7 and 8 years old, were turned over to Child Protective Services Monday night. Sandoval was being held at the Hidalgo County Jail in Edinburg awaiting return to Florida.

A sheriff's spokesman didn't return a call for comment Tuesday.
