Alamo children in custody

Posted By on Sun, Sep 21, 2008 at 3:05 PM

State Police said today that the state had at least temporarily taken custody of children at Tony Alamo's compound at Fouke where a federal/state raid was launched yesterday.

Six minor age children who were transported from the Tony Alamo Christian Ministries property at Fouke (Miller County) last night are being interviewed today (Sunday, September 21st) by investigators of the Arkansas State Police Crimes Against Children Division.  During the short-term separation of the children from the Alamo facilities, the children will be in the care of the Arkansas Department of Human Services.  Should there be any long-term separation of the children from the Alamo property; a local court will make the determination as to the status of those children.

Authorities are investigating allegations of abuse of children and child pornography. The Times reported last year that the investigation was underway.
