An Amber Alert issued for two Chesterfield County children has been canceled. The State Law Enforcement Division says 5-year-old Dennis Penny III and 2-year-old Grace Penny were recovered safely Thursday morning.
SLED officials say the pair’s father 37-year-old Dennis Matthew Penny II was taken into custody. Penny is accused of abducting the children from a residence in the Mount Coghan area of Chesterfield County around 7:30 a.m.
About an hour after SLED issued the Amber Alert, Penny’s white 2005 GMC Sierra pickup truck was spotted near the North Carolina-South Carolina border. He was eventually stopped in Union County, N.C. after a chase.
SLED officials have not yet listed any charges against Penny.
