Couple accused of taking 3 kids returned to Connecticut

March 30, 2019 - 9:38 AM

WATERBURY, Conn. - Authorities say a mother and her boyfriend accused of taking the woman's three children during a supervised visit are back in Connecticut.

Waterbury Police Lt. David Silverio says Crystal McGrath and Lester Joy were extradited on Friday from Texas. They were taken into custody earlier this month in Mazatlan, Mexico, where the three children were found safe.

Authorities say McGrath, the children's noncustodial mother, took them out a side door of a Waterbury's McDonald's in February during a visit supervised by the state Department of Children and Families.

Silverio says McGrath and Joy are being held on $500,000 bail pending their arraignment on charges of custodial interference and risk of injury. It's unclear if they have attorneys.
