Las Vegas couple arrested in California in child abuse case

A couple wanted by Las Vegas police for child abuse was arrested by federal law enforcement officers near San Diego on Tuesday.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers arrested Mallory Purnell, 23, and Brandon Kellermeier, 29, after they were stopped for vehicle inspection, the agency said in a statement.

The officers ran the couple’s fingerprints through law enforcement databases and found a possible match for outstanding felony warrants relating to child abuse for both Purnell and Kellermeier.

The couple awaits extradition to Las Vegas.
