Woman That Allegedly Kidnapped Two Kids In Louisiana Is Now In Santa Rosa Jail

March 6, 2021

The woman that allegedly kidnapped her two young children from Louisiana Tuesday afternoon was arrested Friday night.

Shawntel Nicole Heck was booked into the Santa Rosa County Jail without bond as a fugitive from justice. She has multiple charges pending in Louisiana.

Heck was arrested after contacting a deputy stating she was tired of running and wanted to turn herself in.

An Amber Alert was issued after she allegedly drove away with the children, ages 4 and 8, from their father’s home in Ponchatoula, Louisiana, according to Louisiana authorities. The boys were found safe Wednesday afternoon near Munson in Santa Rosa County, but authorities were unable to immediately locate Heck after a K-9 search.

    I am fairly confused by the comments by people here remarking on how terrible that she looks. Allow me to be clear….
    I sincerely doubt after what she just went through, put her children through, and as this picture is being taken (on what MUST be the worst day of her entire life) I would bet my life that the LAST THING ON HER MIND IS HER APPEARANCE IN THE PHOTO!!!
    Her life is at the low of a lifetime. One doubts that her lack of hair dye or cosmetics is uppermost and it’s pretty awful that it’s what you come up with. People just keep getting more awful.

    If she was such a good mama why did she lose custody…And to take them like that isn’t what’s best for the kids….Now she will be in jail and not see them at all for a while…She is obviously not a smart woman.

    Very sad for every party involved. The kids, the family, and yes, her too.

    Yikes! Quarantine has not been kind to her. Glad the kids are safe. I hope they can get this sorted justly for all of their sakes.
