Woman Jailed on Felony Fugitive Warrant

A woman who Cookeville police started out to trying to help ended up going to jail on a felony fugitive warrant. Officer Jamey McCurry says it happened when he was dispatched to Kroger to assist a female who was stranded. McCurry says the woman told him that she was staying at a domestic violence safehouse and could not find her way back. But McCurry later learned that the woman had been banned from the property for violating its rules. He says that she also could not be left at the Putnam County Rescue Mission because she had been drinking. The woman initialy identified herself as a "Mrs. Kennedy," but police say she had an ID card on her which gave her real name as 30-year-old Elizabeth Crabtree of Jamestown. And they say a records check showed that Crabtree was wanted in Alabama on several warrants. She was taken into custody and held without bond for extradition.
