The Charleston County Sheriff's Office said Dusten Brown was arrested on the Custodial Interference warrant after he turned himself in at the Sequoyah County (Okla) Sheriff's Department.

Spokesman for CCSO, Major Jim Brady said, Brown and his attorney attended a bond hearing resulting in a $10,000.00 personal recognizance bond, and said he already made bail.

"Charleston County authorities are in communications with Oklahoma officials in regards to the extradition process as well as pursuing all available options in locating Baby Veronica," Brady said.

Sequoyah County Sheriff Ron Lockhart says Dusten Brown turned himself in about 10 a.m. and appeared before a judge but refused extradition without a governor's warrant.
 
South Carolina governor spokesman said, ""Gov. Haley is working closely with law enforcement, the solicitor's office, the state of Oklahoma, and the family on this case. Our goal is to do all we can to get Veronica back home safely."

This comes after a press conference this morning with the Capobiancos. They spoke directly to Dusten Brown, law enforcement and anyone hiding his whereabouts after a warrant for his arrest was issued Friday and he failed to comply with court orders.

During the press conference, Baby Veronica's legal adoptive parents begged law enforcement to step up and get their daughter back. The Capobiancos said any other case of custodial interference would be treated as kidnapping and have much more urgency.

Matt claimed he would go get her himself and told News 2's Haley Hernandez that it wasn't said in the heat of the moment, he was going to purchasing a plane ticket. NBC news say they have reports that Matt & Melanie are already on their way to Oklahoma.

The adoptive couple wants the Feds and government officials to step in now and go get Veronica.

The FBI tells News 2, without a federal warrant, they are not getting involved and were not sure this was a matter for more than local officials. The Oklahoma Sheriffs office has not returned our calls.

There was a tribal court hearing this morning, our Tulsa station says Brown was not there. The Cherokee nation has said Veronica has rights under tribal law that have not yet been exhausted and they will continue the hearing on another date.

We will have more tonight on News 2 at 5:00 and 6:00
