Rowland was reportedly sent by his grandmother, Rose Lee of Richmond, to retrieve her two granddaughters from their father who lives in Grant County, Oklahoma. Richmond police located the children and Rowland at Lee’s residence.
Grant County Assisant Prosecuting Attorney Steven Young is considering filing charges against Rowland for the violation of his probation.
