Crumbly was taken into custody on charges of child abduction, a felony of the third degree, as well as additional charges, including falsification, a felony of the fifth degree, and a first-degree misdemeanor drug charge.

A passenger in the car, Tineshia Monae Mack, 24, of Benton Harbor, Michigan, was also taken into custody and charged with falsification, a misdemeanor of the first degree.

Crumbly was incarcerated in the Van Wert County Correctional Facility, pending an appearance in Van Wert County Common Pleas Court. Mack was also held in the local lock-up pending an appearance in Van Wert Municipal Court.
