Amber Alert deactivated after 17-year-old found; estranged boyfriend in custody

SHERIDAN, Colo. -- An Amber Alert for a 17-year-old girl missing out of Sheridan has been deactivated. The Sheridan Police Department says Samantha Herrera has been located. Her estranged boyfriend, 18-year-old Rodney Brown, is in custody.

Around 11:35 p.m. Tuesday, SPD asked the public to look out for a white Honda Accord that the two may have been traveling in.

Police said officers responded to a Pet Smart parking lot at 3720 River Point Parkway, in theĀ area of West Hampden Avenue and Santa Fe Drive, at 5:10 p.m. Tuesday on a report of two females screaming for someone to call 911.

Police said Brown physically prevented Herrera from getting out of the vehicle and drove away. There is a court-ordered protection order prohibiting Brown from contacting Herrera, police said.

A witness said Herrera was trying to get out of Brown's car after a physical struggle.

Authorities later said Herrera and Brown were believed to be in the north metro Denver area.

Around 7:45 p.m. Wednesday, SPD said Brown was arrested in Northglenn about 5 p.m.

Police have not said whether Herrera was injured.
