By John Larson

The two Quemado men arrested in connection with an Amber Alert four weeks ago have been extradited to Wyoming and are currently awaiting arraignment in Campbell County Circuit Court in Gillette.
The two men - Barry E. Calhoun, 69, and his son Jesse E. Calhoun, 22 – have each been charged with “interference with custody,” a felony punishable by up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
Other charges are expected to be filed in connection with the disappearance Apr. 9 of a 14 year-old girl from Gillette, according to Gillette police Sgt. Chuck Deaton.
An Amber Alert was released Apr. 9, and the teenager was found later that day at a hotel in Trinidad, Colo., with Jesse Calhoun. Calhoun was arrested and the girl was returned to her parents.
Barry Calhoun was arrested in Quemado and was held in the jail at the Catron County Sheriff’s Dept. until his extradition to Wyoming,
The Calhouns requested a continuance on their arraignment.
