CHENEY -- Police have stopped a motor home that was the subject of an Amber Alert out of Seattle earlier today (Dec. 10). The suspect vehicle, a 28-foot, tan 1992 Bounder motor home with license plate number BPP8654, was pulled over by police at an old gas station at the corner of 1st and I streets. The vehicle was reported driven by 42-year-old Nicholas Antonie, who along with his wife Crystal allegedly abducted their four children in defiance of a judge's order to turn them over to Child Protective Services.

Q-13 Fox in Seattle/Tacoma is reporting the children are safe and the Antonies are under arrest. No other details are currently available.
