Lafayette grandmother, accused of taking child, surrenders to authorities

LAFAYETTE PARISH, LA (KPLC) - A Lafayette grandmother who was wanted for kidnapping is in police custody, according to the Lafayette Parish Sheriff's Office.

Rebecca Sue Foster had been sought after she allegedly kidnapped her 3-year-old grandson this week.

The woman surrendered to Lafayette deputies late Friday, authorities said, and the child was recovered.

Foster is accused of "knowingly" keeping her grandson away from the Department of Children and Family Services, which was reportedly granted legal custody of the child earlier this month.
