Around 4:20 a.m., Seminole County Sheriff’s Office received the call and responded to the scene.  They gathered information about the female suspect, including the make and model of her vehicle, as well as her cell phone information.

Later in the morning, investigators pinged the woman’s phone to determine her location.  The track led to the Whigham area, moving west, back toward Seminole County.  Around 11:45 a.m., officers from several agencies converged on the Bainbridge area to intercept the suspect, however, the vehicle they were looking for was not located.

At 11:59 p.m., a van bearing a Lowndes County tag was stopped about 3 miles inside Seminole County.  Inside, officers found the suspect, as well as her mother and sister.  According to the woman, she was on her way to the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office to turn herself in to police.

The female suspect was arrested with no further incident.
