According to Bedford Police Chief Terry Moore, officers were requested to the parking lot after a report that 43-year-old Rachel Merry was harassing individuals in the parking lot.

“Officers arrived and found her in a vehicle with a female passenger 24-year-old Harmony Pemberton,” says Chief Moore. “Officers were notified that Pemberton was wanted on an active warrant and when asked to step out of the vehicle she refused.”
