A woman on Fourth Avenue told police she was given a ride from 1516 E 49th St. by an unknown male to 3424 Rossville Blvd. She said that once there, the male driver exited the car and told her his girlfriend, a white female, would be driving her to Bradley County. The woman had previously sustained injuries to both legs from a motor vehicle accident and is unable to walk without her crutches. She told the officer that the unknown female driver stopped at 2301 4th Ave. and asked the woman to exit the car to check the vehicle's lights. The woman told her she couldn’t walk, however the female persisted. The woman said she exited the car, holding on to it for support, to check the lights. While she was doing so, the female drove off. The woman is unsure why she drove off and told the officer she left her belongings in the vehicle. She said her crutches ($120), Samsung Galaxy 13 ($1,200), pink Michael Kors purse/bag containing miscellaneous belongings ($500), her pearl necklace ($2,000), diamond ring ($2,000), pink Nike Shoes ($130) and a Michael Kors belt ($60) were all in the car.

Police took the woman to East 49th Street, however, the friend was not home and could not be reached by phone. At the request of the woman, the officer gave her a ride to Jenkins Road where HCSO would help further transport her to Bradley County due to her inability to walk and lack of phone.
