The South Carolina De­part­ment of Social Ser­vices obtained the court order Wednesday.

The Aiken County Sher­iff’s Office, with the assistance of the Richmond Coun­ty Sheriff’s Office, found Timpson and her children in the 2900 block of Vanessa Drive in Augusta on Thurs­day. She was arrested and taken to the Richmond County Detention Center.
