CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - A 59-year-old woman has acknowledged abducting her 7-year-old granddaughter from her elementary school playground in Casper.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1wJzuMG ) Viana Jones, of Edgerton, appeared in court Thursday and pleaded guilty to custodial interference. She had been ordered by a court not to have contact with her granddaughter except during supervised visits after pleading guilty to marijuana possession.

Jones was reportedly wearing a wig when she went to North Casper Elementary School on Nov. 3 and drove away with the girl, who became the subject of an Amber Alert. The grandmother was arrested about 11 miles west of Sundance.

Jones is being held at the Natrona County jail on $50,000 bail and will be sentenced at a later date.
