Man charged with interference with custody

A 27 year old Key Largo man, an employee of the Florida Keys Children’s Shelter, is under arrest today charged with taking two teens who’d run away to a motel in Cutler Ridge.

Investigations into what the teens became involved in after Ricky Atkins took them to the motel are ongoing. The extent of his involvement with other crimes is also still under investigation.

After receiving the report, Detective Vince Weiner from the Sheriff’s Office Major Crimes Unit, worked with the Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office Human Trafficking Task Force to investigate the allegations. The investigation is ongoing.

Atkins was booked into jail on Tuesday, charged with two counts of interference with custody – a third degree felony.
