Grants Police arrest man suspected of abducting 9-year-old Tennessee girl

GRANTS, N.M. (KRQE) - Grants Police arrested a kidnapping suspect from Tennessee. 

Brenton White is wanted in Memphis for abducting his 9-year-old daughter. Detectives say they tracked White to a Sonic in Grants. 

Officers there were called and surrounded White's car, but police say White tried to take off. 

"We were able to spike the suspect's vehicle, which caused this pursuit to be a 20 mph pursuit with three kids in the car rather than a 100 mph pursuit," Officer Moses Marquez said. 

Police say when White got out of his car, he used the little girl as a shield. 

He was caught with another adult and two more children. 

White is now facing several felony charges. 

For now, his daughter is in CYFD custody.
