Police: Woman in bikini stole car
Police in Mississippi said they have arrested a bikini-clad woman who allegedly stole a car and tried to rob a business with a non-existent gun.
Southaven Police Chief Tom Long said Morgan Haley, 24, approached the carjacking victim in the woman's driveway at about 5:30 p.m. Thursday and ordered her to give up her car, The Desoto Times-Tribune, Hernando, Miss., reported Monday.
Haley drove the car to Southaven RV Center and demanded money, telling employees that she was concealing a gun beneath a towel, Long said. Employees wrestled Haley to the ground and discovered the
gun was a cell phone.
The suspect was charged with carjacking and assault. She was taken to the DeSoto County Jail in lieu of $6,000.
Police said Haley appeared to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of her alleged crimes.
