U.S. Marshals Service officials said 37-year-old Dustin Messner was taken into custody Wednesday at a home in Golden Valley.
They said Messner abducted his 8-year-old son from Stockton, California, on April 5.
Authorities said Messner made numerous comments and posts to his social media accounts that he wouldn’t be returning his son and threatened any law enforcement agency that would try to take him.
It’s unclear if Messner has a lawyer yet for his case.
