By Fox 40 Staff. A woman who police say abducted her child, triggering a region-wide amber alert, is now in jail.
Authorities say 26- year-old Veronica Mitchell, who had non-custodial rights to her 3-month-old son, took the child away from his legal guardian during a supervised visit Tuesday afternoon. The incident happened near Chenango Street in Binghamton. Mitchell appeared in court Wednesday where she was charged with second-degree custodial interference, petit larceny, and harassment. She is now in the Broome County Jail on $1,000 cash bail.
