Wanted in LA for child endangerment since 2017, woman, 43, arrested in Anderson
ANDERSON, Calif., — Authorities in Anderson say a woman found loitering outside a closed business was arrested after providing officers with a false name early yesterday morning, Tuesday Sept. 28.
LEADING THE SCNS HEADLINES:
At around 1230 a.m., a City of Anderson police officer contacted Janiey Kathleen Augustine, 43, of Los Angeles, after seeing her loitering near a closed business.
Although Augustine initially provided the officer with a false name, her identity was later confirmed; at which time a records check revealed she had an active felony warrant issued by the Los Angeles Police Department.
The years-old warrant, which had been issued in 2017, was for felony child endangerment.
Augustine was arrested for her warrant and booked into the Shasta County Jail, and she is now awaiting extradition back to Los Angeles.
