Crime reports: One arrested for stealing vehicle, having it crushed at recycling yard

A car that was left on the side of the road after it was involved in an accident, was stolen in late March before the vehicle’s owner could have it towed.

What made it worse, the vehicle was later found to have been crushed in a recycling yard.

Tuesday, a Vicksburg woman was arrested and charged with stealing that vehicle.

Jasmine Alexander, 28, of Vicksburg, was arrested Tuesday on a charge of theft of a motor vehicle, a 2008 Nissan Altima.
