The Jackson County Sheriff’s Department says a three year old boy from Arcata, California has been returned to his biological mother after the child’s father took him for an extended without permission. 29 year old Ramin Ahadi was seen parked in a 1980 Volkswagen Vanagon with California plates last night at 11:50 p.m. on Eagle Mill Road in Ashland.
Five people were in the van, including, Ahadi, his wife and the couple’s two children, along with the missing child. After the three year old in the van was identified as the missing boys, Ahadi was arrested for custodial interference.
During the course of the investigation, it was learned that the pink-colored Volkswagen had been recently re-painted. Authorities determined it had been stolen out of Eugene before it had been painted.
Ahadi is being jailed on $55,000 bail.
