SPOKANE, Wash – Eight girls who ran away from group homes in Arizona in the midst of a federal investigation were found hiding out in an Airbnb in Spokane.

The girls were found with a woman named Moretta Rose Johnson, who is now charged with kidnapping in federal court.

The charges stem from the case against Samuel Bateman. Bateman was a leader of a polygamist cult on the Arizona-Utah line.

The group was a small offshoot of the FLDS cult, made infamous by the actions of its leader Warren Jeffs.

According to the Associated Press, Bateman was once one of Jeffs’ trusted followers, but Jeffs denounced him from prison.
