An arrest warrant was issued April 15 for a Muldrow woman who allegedly took a truck on a test drive and didn’t return it to the dealership.
Angela Coleman, 46, was charged with knowingly receiving or concealing stolen property, a felony punishable by imprisonment in the State Penitentiary for up to five years (or up to one year in the county jail), a fine of up to $500 or both.
On April 13, a Sequoyah County Sheriff’s deputy was contacted by the Fort Smith Police Department in reference to a 2012 Nissan Titan that was reported stolen from Black Mustang Motors on Towson Avenue in Fort Smith.
Coleman had reportedly taken the truck for a test drive and never returned it. The FSPD said the vehicle had GPS and had “pinged” in the Nicut area.
Because of previous encounters with Coleman, the deputy knew her address. While on his way to the residence the deputy spotted the truck parked at 474805 State Highway 101. Dispatch confirmed that the truck was the one that had been stolen.
Once inside the home, the deputy found Coleman hiding in the bathroom. She said she was hiding because she didn’t want to go to jail and she insisted she had paid for the truck, though she had no paperwork as proof.
Coleman’s bond was set at $1,500 and her next court appearance is set for 9 a.m. May 27 before Judge Kyle Waters.
