A South Texas man and woman have been charged with kidnapping after three boys were abducted from a foster home but later rescued and returned.

KSAT-TV reported that 26-year-old Christopher Jasso of San Antonio and 28-year-old Judith Reyes of Seguin are each charged with three counts of aggravated kidnapping.

Jasso and Reyes were being held Monday on $300,000 bond apiece. Online jail records didn't indicate attorneys for the pair. Details weren't immediately available about a possible motive.

Guadalupe County authorities said Jasso had a gun when he and Reyes allegedly took the boys late Thursday. The children are younger than 8 years old.

A deputy later spotted Jasso's vehicle, leading to a brief chase and the arrest of the suspects. The unharmed boys were returned to their foster family.
