Late Thursday evening, the Salina Poice Department responded to two young children who were taken from protective custody by 21-year-old Salinan Katherine Lynn, their mother, after she violated the custody order.

SPD sergeant Kyle Tonniges said officers arrested Lynn earlier in the day, leading police officers to take the two young children, aged 2 and 3, into police custody and eventually to a home in Salina.

At 10 p.m., Lynn appeared at the 1500 block of Dover Drive and "walked right in the house without any permission, took her kids and went home," Tonniges said. 

Tonniges said officers located Lynn and took the children back into police custody. Requested charges for Lynn include aggravated burglary, two counts of violating a protection order, two of interference with parental custody, and two of child endangerment.
