ADRIANA JORIEL JOHNS, 27, was arrested on suspicion of abducting her 8-year-old son and taking him to Florida.

A 27-year-old woman has been arrested on suspicion of abducting her 8-year-old son and taking him to Florida, Santa Monica police said.
Adriana Joriel Johns, who lost custody of her son, Jounel Armon Taylor, to her mother in December, was taken into custody by the Lake County Sheriff’s Department in Clermont, Fla. March 22, Santa Monica police Sgt. Richard Lewis said. The boy, who was taken into custody by deputies, was found in good health and reunited with his grandmother in Florida March 24, Lewis said.
The child spent the night with his biological mother March 6 but when Johns was supposed to take her son to school in the morning, she allegedly fled with the boy and stopped communicating with her mother, police said.
Johns waived extradition and was brought back to Santa Monica April 5, Lewis said. She was booked on child abduction charges and an outstanding burglary warrant, he said.
Bail was set at $150,000.
