COLUMBIA, Tenn. – A Maury County woman was taken into custody Wednesday, less than a week after her addition to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation's Top Ten Most Wanted List.

Officials said a tip called into 1-800-TBI-FIND line led to the arrest of 5-year-old Lesandru "Precious" Webster at a home in Lewisburg. TBI Agents, along with deputies with the U.S. Marshal's Service and detectives of the Lewisburg and Columbia Police Departments, took her into custody without incident.

Webster was wanted by the TBI and the Columbia Police Department for charges of Especially Aggravated Kidnapping and Aggravated Robbery.

Webster was allegedly part of a scheme that used Facebook to lure an unsuspecting robbery victim. Officials said the man was kidnapped and forced at gunpoint to withdraw cash from an ATM on July 19.

Webster was held at the Maury County jail without bond.
