San Diego Fugitive Arrested, Returned to Calif.



    Tammy Rief, 45, has been returned to San Diego.

    A San Diego fugitive was who was captured in Alabama has returned to California.

    Tammy Cherie Rief, 45, was wanted on a warrant from San Diego and charged with child abduction. She was arrested in April at a business in Ider, Ala.

    Rief had previously been arrested in North Carolina as a fugitive, but posted bail and was released. She never made it to her court date and instead left the state, according to Alabama officials.

    When Rief was arrested in April, California authorities were contacted to issue a governor’s warrant, which would bring her back to the state.

    Two San Diego County investigators brought Rief back to the county on Tuesday. She was booked into Las Colinas Detention Facility and is being held on $125,000 bail.
