Pine Lawn Woman Arrested For Kidnapping 5-Year-Old Girl

ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. (KMOX) –  A 25-year-old woman faces child kidnapping charges.

Ashley A. White of Pine Lawn is accused of abducting the girl from a babysitter’s home on Tyrell Drive in Jennings Monday afternoon.

The child was unharmed and returned to her mother within 25 minutes of police receiving the call.

Police say Ashley White “is a known person” to the child’s mother, and had actually asked to borrow money from the mother just before the kidnapping.

Bond has been set at $100,000.

Jeffrey Fuesting, St. Louis County Lieutenant of the City of Jennings, said, “We are very grateful that we were able to locate the suspect and the five year old girl so quickly. Our combined efforts brought a five year old safety back to her family.”
