Connecticut State Police say at around 2:40 p.m., troopers were made to be on the lookout for a 2003 Chevrolet Trailblazer from Pittsfield, Massachusetts. The vehicle was said to be occupied by 40-year-old Shareen Tana, her three children and possibly two others.

State troopers were able to locate the vehicle at an Alltown convenience store and gas station at 110 Newtown Road in Danbury. Tana was then taken into custody on an extraditable warrant from Pittsfield for kidnapping a minor by relative.
Police say all five children were not injured.
Tana was charged with being a fugitive from justice; extradition and held on a $100,000 bond.
