On March 19, 2017 at approximately 11:10 am an investigator with the Henry County Sheriff’s Office was on Pine St. in the Fieldale area of Henry County conducting a follow-up investigation. He observed a green Mazda 626 that had recently been reported to the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office as a stolen vehicle.

The vehicle came to a stop at the intersection of Pine St. and Chestnut St. where a white female exited the passenger seat and ran on foot.
