A 35-year-old Rosepine woman and her daughter are in custody and facing a variety of charges, authorities said.

Vernon Parish Sheriff Sam Craft said Regina Prether-Miller and her 16-year-old daughter were arrested Tuesday at a home in Rosepine.

Miller was booked in Vernon Parish on one count of identity theft, two counts of unauthorized use of an access card and three counts of forgery.

Bond was set at $21,000, but Miller is being detained for outstanding warrants in Beauregard.

Craft said Miller took her 16-year-old daughter away from her legal guardian without permission. Miller does not have legal custody of the child.

The juvenile was transported to the Beauregard Parish for an active bench warrant in an unrelated matter.

Additional charges against Miller are expected, Craft said.
