FARMERSBURG — Late last week, a local business contacted the
Farmersburg Town Marshal's Office in reference to a theft. Officers
viewed video camera footage and were able to determine who the suspect
was during the theft due to the very noticeable bicycle being driven
away from the scene.
Officers proceeded to the residence where the bicycle was located and
made contact with the woman, who was positively identified as the
suspect in the theft. The suspect was briefly staying in Farmersburg
awaiting travel to Florida.
On Monday morning, Amanda Jean McDonald, 40, of Florida, was taken
into custody by Marshal Cody Strain. It was discovered that McDonald
had numerous outstanding arrest warrants from Florida and a
full-extradition arrest warrant for escape/failure to appear from the
Denver, Colorado area.
After McDonald appears for her Sullivan County theft charge, she will
be extradited to Colorado to stand trial for her outstanding warrant.
She was being held in jail without bond set.
