CANTON — A woman arrested after an alleged shoplifting incident tried to jump out of the jail-bound patrol cruiser traveling over 50 mph, Stark County Jail records show.
Tiffany A. Perry, 31, listed in jail records as homeless, was arrested at 1:15 p.m. Monday at Marc’s, 3014 Cromer Ave. NW.
According to jail records, she tried to leave the store without paying for merchandise.
When officers sought to identify her, she gave them a false name “to prevent them from finding out she had warrants,” the jail records show.
On the way to the jail, she tried to open the patrol door and jump out but was unsuccessful.
Perry already was wanted on felony charges of cocaine possession and five counts of aggravated drug possession.
Stark County court records show she was convicted of those charges in April 2018 and sentenced to intensive supervisory probation and three years of community control. By September, her probation had been revoked, and as recently as April 3, she was labeled an absconder.
Perry was jailed Monday afternoon on warrants and on charges of felony escape and misdemeanor theft.
She remained in jail Tuesday, held without bond pending court hearings.
