THOMAS CO., GA (WALB) -

A South Florida woman is now in the Thomas County Jail, and another woman is hospitalized after police said they crashed trying to escape arrest following a multi-state crime spree.

Police said Stephanie Fernandez, 34, and Bonnie McClelland, 50, were smashing car windows and stealing purses in Thomasville and Cairo last week.

Police said surveillance video shows the two breaking into a car in the Thomasville YMCA parking lot.

Officers believe the two are also responsible for car break ins in Quincy, Tallahassee and Marrianna.

Cairo officers spotted the two at a local bank, sparking a high-speed chase.

The suspects flipped their car on Highway 84 near Bracewell Automotive.

"They were basically hubbed in Tallahassee on Stucky Street and took turns going out and committing these acts," said Captain Maurice Holmes.

Fernandez is being held in the Thomas County Jail.

McClelland is still in the hospital in Gainesville being treated for her injuries.
