Earlier this morning, a Johnson County Sheriff’s deputy was dispatched to Desoto to check on the welfare of a distraught woman, found standing on a street corner. After determining that no crime had been committed by or against the woman, she requested to be taken to Shawnee Mission Medical Center to be assessed.
The deputy allowed the woman to sit in the front seat for the ride from Desoto to Overland Park. Upon arrival at the Shawnee Mission Medical Center, at approximately 1:53 a.m., the officer walked around the vehicle to let the woman out. At that time she slid across the front seat and left the area with the vehicle.
The vehicle was recovered at 1:59 at 9100 W. 70th St. The woman was apprehended at 71st Terrace and Frontage Rd. and is in custody.
