    DANBURY, Conn. (AP) - Connecticut officials say they have arrested a woman and found five children unharmed after she allegedly kidnapped them in Massachusetts and threatened to harm them and herself.

    Pittsfield, Massachusetts, police notified regional law enforcement Tuesday to be on the lookout for 40-year-old Shareen Tanna, her three children and possibly two other children in an SUV.

    Authorities say Tanna took the children without permission and was believed to be headed to her new home in Rochester, New York.

    A Connecticut trooper found Tanna and the children at a convenience store in Danbury. Tanna was taken into custody and faces charges of kidnapping minors by a relative in Pittsfield.

    The children were returned to their families.

    It wasn't immediately clear if Tanna has a lawyer who could respond to the allegations.
