A 20-year-old woman was arrested Tuesday morning at a tow yard in the 600 block of South Mayhill Road after she allegedly drove off with her vehicle without paying the tow and impound fees, according to a police report.

Police said the woman returned to the tow yard to find officers waiting for her. In the report, it says the tow company managed to persuade the woman to return with the vehicle.

Officers learned the woman had active warrants for her arrest. They arrested her on those warrants, and while at the jail, officers found a bag of what police think is methamphetamine on her, according to the report.

She was additionally charged with possession of a controlled substance. She was not charged Tuesday in connection with taking the vehicle from the tow yard.
