Baker County woman hijacks cop car

March 24, 2004

Baker County- Baker County deputies and State Troopers are looking for a woman who took off in a Newton Police car tonight after she fired a gun in her home near her children.

The woman drove the car through the woods behind her house on Clear Lake Road. Deputies found the car near those woods, but no sign of the woman. Police were at her home after her children called them when she fired a gun.

"She went into a bedroom, barricaded the door, and when we got through the bedroom door, she had gone out a bedroom window," said Deputy Sheriff Aubrey Suggs. "She went outside and got in a city of Newton police car and took off in it."

The GSP helicopter is being flown in to help look for her in the woods.
