8-Year Old Anderson Girl Steals Mother’s Car

It’s unlikely that a suspected car thief in Anderson will face any jail time, but she may end up being grounded.

That’s because the person behind the wheel of a stolen Jeep in Anderson that police chased and forced to stop over the weekend was the 8-year-old daughter of the woman who reported it stolen.

Police say the chase began on State Road 32 when police spotted the vehicle. It ended when police say the car was forced it to stop outside a convenience store in Lapel.

The girl refused to get out of the vehicle and officers had to break a window to get her out.
