COBLESKILL – A Cobleskill woman was arrested Thursday, accused of interfering with the custody of two children under the age of 16, New York State Police said.
Amber Bink, 29, of Cobleskill, was charged with second-degree custodial interference, a misdemeanor, state police said.
The investigation began as the state police assisted Schoharie County Child Protective Services with finding two children under the age of 16 who were being held by a relative for a protracted period of time, in violation of a Schoharie County Family Court order, state police said.
CPS agents had developed information that Bink was at a residence in Cobleskill where she was preventing the lawful custodian of the children from taking custody, state police said.
Bink was found with the children and taken into custody. CPS agents took custody of the children, while Bink was arrested, state police said.
Bink was arraigned, issued an order of protection and released to return to court next month, state police said.
