ALBUQUERQUE, [NM]--Four members of a New Mexico paramilitary religious sect rocked by child sexual abuse allegations were arrested while trying to flee the state in two vans full of children, authorities said Thursday. Cibola County Sheriff Tony Mace confirmed that the four members of the Aggressive Christianity Missions Training Corps were arrested late Wednesday as deputies tried to execute a court order to pick up the children for interviews from the group’s isolated compound in western New Mexico. Arrest warrants had been issued for the four taken into custody. They were arrested late Wednesday on felony warrants for failure to register the births of their 11 children. Amos River, Victoria River, Ruth River and Timothy River were arrested after deputies stopped the two vans leaving the compound. Sect leaders had previously told authorities they didn’t have transportation to take the children to meet with an FBI forensic interviewer. Inside the vans were seven children, around $1,000 in cash, luggage and road maps, Mace said. “Basically, you could tell they were getting ready to bug out and leave the area,” Mace said. “I believe that’s in an effort to try to conceal the kids from us.” Mace said the children, believed to be ages 4-17, were turned over to the New Mexico Children, Youth and Families Department. Investigators believe the vans may have been headed to a location in Colorado. View More>>
