After she was reported missing last week, the Corinth Police Department put out an alert identifying her as Acelon Spears. Capt. Dell Green said she potentially faces a charge of motor vehicle theft.
“We are referring the case to youth court,” he said. Because of her age, “We can’t issue a warrant and extradite her back down here.”
The police department had not learned exactly what happened in Akron, Ohio, where the vehicle was recovered, but she is facing a criminal charge there also.
Spears was reported missing last Tuesday. Green said she came to Corinth with family and had been in the Corinth area for a couple of weeks.
Last Tuesday evening, she stayed overnight with an individual on Main Street. That individual awoke to discover Spears and the vehicle, a 2012 Dodge Caliber, were gone.
