Very noticeable bicycle leads to arrest in Farmersburg

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.
