(JASONVILLE) - Jasonville police have arrested a southern Indiana woman who has outstanding warrants from three states for writing 'cold checks'.
The Greene County Daily World reports that on Tuesday, Jasonville Assistant Police Chief Jim Gadberry received a complaint of a vehicle blocking a dumpster that was situated behind the Assembly of God Church, adjacent to the rear of the Shakamak Inn Motel.
Upon arriving Gadberry found a white four-door Oldsmobile passenger car and the plate had been taken off of the rear. Upon running the V.I.N. number, Gadberry found the vehicle belonged to Heather Joy Kendall, of Boonville, Ind.
Gadberry made contact with the motel manager to see if a woman fitting Kendall's description might be staying there.
While trying to locate Kendall, Gadberry found that Kendall was possibly wanted.
As information continued to come in, the police officer found that Kendall was really wanted.
"When all said and done, Kendall was found to be wanted on warrants from multiple agencies in Indiana, Illinois, and Kentucky. On top of that one of the warrants was flagged for officer safety advising Kendall was to be considered armed and dangerous," Gadberry explained.
As Gadberry waited for assistance, he made a visual contact on a female believed to be Kendall walk into one of the motel rooms.
The motel manager advised it was a female registered under the name of "Kristen Boston".
Linton City Officer Paul Clark and Greene County Sheriff's Department Deputy Heath Murray arrived to assist.
Entry was made and Kendall was identified along with a male companion and Kendall was taken into custody without incident.
Kendall told Gadberry that she had been on the run for about a month and had been in Jasonville for a little over two weeks.
Greene County Deputy Karen Oliphant also assisted in the arrest.
Gadberry later talked to a Madisonville, Ky. detective who advised that Kendall was wanted in the tri-state area for writing "cold checks" for more than $60,000 primarily at WalMart stores.
Kendall was transported to Greene/Knox county line and turned over to Knox County authorities on an outstanding warrant.
