Three Florida women who were wanted on felony warrants out of Georgia, who police said taunted them on social media, have been arrested in Indiana after a chase.
Just after 6 p.m., an Indiana State trooper spotted a white Nissan Sentra speeding along Interstate 70 in Hancock County. The trooper tried to pull the small sedan over, but it sped on into Henry County.
The vehicle was eventually brought to a “controlled stop” on I-70 south of New Castle, and three people in the car were taken into custody.
In the vehicle, police found “a substantial amount of credit cards, check books, social security cards and identification cards belonging to people not in the vehicle,” state police said. All were determined to be stolen.
Police learned later the occupants of the vehicle were wanted out of Georgia for a “string” of thefts, state police said. Indiana State Police said after the Covington Georgia Police Department issued a ‘Be On the Lookout’ alert that included surveillance photos and identifying information of the suspects, a Georgia media outlet aired a story about the suspects using social media to brag about their crimes and taunt police who were searching for them.
In one post, the suspects reported wrote, “Do ya job [expletive]” to police, state police said.
Police did so.
- Toni L. Huizar, 23, of Fort Meyers, Florida, on felony warrants from Henry County Georgia as well as preliminary charges of resisting law enforcement with a vehicle and possession of stolen property.
- Amber L. Dunlap, 27, of Lehigh Acres, Florida, on felony warrants out of Henry County Georgia and a preliminary charge of possession of stolen property.
- Tiphanie D. Sager, 26, of Cape Coral, Florida, on felony warrants out of Henry County Georgia and a preliminary charge of possession of stolen property.
The Hancock County Prosecutor is expected to review the case to determine the charges related to the incident. The suspects will eventually be extradited back to Georgia to face the outstanding criminal allegations there.
