TROUTMAN, N.C. (QUEEN CITY NEWS) — A woman has been arrested after fleeing from the police with a stolen license plate on her vehicle, according to the Troutman Police Department.
Around 9:20 Monday night, an officer stopped a Nissan Altima for speeding on South Main Street.
Once the officer exited his patrol car, the driver of the Nissan sped away, officials said.
After a chase on Main Street and then onto Perth Road, a deputy with the Iredell County Sheriff’s Office successfully used spike strips to stop the suspect.
22-year-old Jordan Williams was taken into custody and officers found her 1-year-old child in the vehicle.
The Mooresville Police Department contacted the Troutman officials to say they had just taken a report indicating that Williams had stolen the license plate that was on the Nissan in their jurisdiction.
Williams was taken before a judge and charged with:
- Felony speed to elude arrest
- Misdemeanor child abuse
- Possession of stolen property
- Various traffic offenses
Officials say she is being held without bond until appearing before a District Court Judge because she was out on bond for a weapons violation.
