Deputies Nab Theft Suspect with Traffic Stop

web posted April 26, 2014

TRENTON Edgefield County 911 Dispatchers received a call around 3:30 Thursday morning stating someone was breaking into their cars on Cowboy Way. The man stated the light in one of the cars was on and someone was walking around with a flashlight. As he made his way downstairs, the person left in a red car while he was calling 911.

Deputies responding to the call intersected a red Chevy sedan and conducted a traffic stop on nearby Windy Ridge Road. The driver, Carla Michelle James, 47, of Aiken, stated she was lost because her GPS was not working. According to an incident report, she stated she had been to the home the deputies were responding to, but had only "urinated" next to one of the victim's vehicles.

A second deputy arrived at the home and was told two vehicles and been entered. Missing from them was a black Gerber fixed blade knife and a black Garmin GPS in a black case.

James was escorted back to the scene where the victim identified the car. Inside the car was the knife that had been stolen and James was taken into custody. The GPS unit and case were also recovered. Her car was towed from the scene and she was transported to the Edgefield County Detention Center for booking.

She has been charged with two counts of felony breaking and entering a vehicle and is being held on a total of $5,000 in surety bonds as of Friday afternoon.
