PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A mother was arrested early Tuesday morning after an Amber Alert went out saying she had kidnapped her six-year-old son.

Late Monday, April Brinkman, 51, took her son from his father’s home on NE 52nd Street, the Clark County Sheriff’s Office said. The father, James Fargher, called police to report the abduction.

About a week ago, the boy was taken from Brinkman by New Mexico Child Protective Services because of neglect, authorities said.

Around 1:00 a.m., Brinkman was spotted at a gas station in Umatilla County, OR, authorities said, which led Oregon State Police to find her heading East on Interstate 84.

According to Clark County Sheriff’s Office, Brinkman attempted to elude police, but officers didn’t follow saying it was for the safety of the child.

Eventually, police said they successfully placed tire deflation devices which safely made the vehicle inoperable.

Brinkman was arrested just west of the Idaho border and the child was safely returned to his father.

Brinkman faces charges including residential burglary, custodial interference and attempting to elude police.
