MILLER COUNTY, Mo. – Miller County has not identified the woman who stole one of their patrol cars during an escape attempt.

When it was determined the woman had several warrants for her arrest and a controlled substance in her possession, she was taken into custody. The woman, who had her hands cuffed behind her back, crawled into the front seat and drove a short distance before exiting the vehicle and fleeing on foot.

The woman was later found and awaits the filing of formal charges.
