WICHITA, Kansas – The Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Department reports that 41-year-old Kathleen Williams is in jail after being arrested Friday on charges of child abandonment, theft of property, and probation violations.
Police have sought Williams since Mid-June when they say she attempted to take about $200 worth of items from the women’s clothing department at the Kohl’s Store on West Kellogg. She was caught by security and returned the items, but ran out of the store, leaving her 5-year-old grandson behind.
The boy was detained by security until police arrived. He was put into police protective custody.
