(SEYMOUR) – A Seymour woman was arrested after stealing a vehicle with a 12-year-old inside.
Police received a call at 9:31 p.m. Tuesday from the owner of the vehicle Dilana Lewis saying her vehicle was missing from the parking lot of the Dollar General store at 1224 East Tipton Street and her daughter was inside the vehicle.
While Lewis was on the phone with police, her daughter called saying the vehicle was traveling east on Tipton Street and US 50 and was turning north on I-65.
The 12-year-old stayed on the phone giving police updates on where the vehicle was located.
Officers located the vehicle and stopped it in Bartholomew County. They arrested 28-year-old Shawna Lucas, who told police she had stolen the vehicle and knew the girl was inside.
Lucas told the girl that she “had to get away from someone who had just killed multiple people.” Police say they are investigating Lucas’ allegations.
Lewis and her daughter, who was not injured, were reunited at the scene.
