Officers were contacted by the Cobb County Sheriff's Office out of Georgia in reference to a kidnapping. Officers were advised Victoria Mlonyeni, was the suspect in the kidnapping of her 3 children whom she does not have custody of.

Officers learned Mlonyeni had taken the 3 children from their father while at a local restaurant in Georgia. Through investigation, Cobb County suspected Mlonyeni was in the Jennings area possibly at a local motel.

Officers observed a blue Hyundai Santa Fe driven by Mlonyeni on Hwy 26 traveling north. Officers were able to conduct a traffic stop on the vehicle. The children were safely brought back to the Jennings Police Department and Department of Children and Family Services was contacted. Mlonyeni was arrested on warrants for 3 counts of kidnapping and transferred to the JDSO jail and is awaiting extradition.
