Woman served with kidnapping warrant

An arrest warrant for kidnapping of a minor was served Tuesday by Hopkinsville Police against a Tennessee woman.

It alleges that on February 6, 36-year old Kristin Stewart of Clarksville picked up a 13-year old child she knew was a runaway from a placement in Louisville and brought the child to the Hopkinsville Department of Community Based Services office to ask that the juvenile be placed with her.

Stewart told social workers that she is a foster parent in Tennessee.

The warrant says Stewart had been in contact with a Louisville police officer, who told her that she must let them know if she knew the whereabouts of the teen, or bring the child to them.

Police say Stewart is not related to the child and that she told detectives she contacted the juvenile through Facebook.

Stewart was lodged in the Christian County Jail on a $20,000 bond.
