OPELIKA, AL (WSFA) -

The Auburn Police Department arrested a woman on Saturday and charged with first degree theft of property.

Police arrested 32-year-old Tequial Watts from Opelika after an investigation by authorities into a report of an auto theft that was filed on March 26 by a business on Opelika Road. The business told officers that on Feb. 14, Watts obtained a 2012 Hyundai Accent GL valued at $15,999 from them through a short term rental agreement. Watts failed to return the vehicle as scheduled and fled the area.

After an investigation, the Auburn Police Department discovered Watts was located near Kansas City, Missouri. Detectives issued an arrest warrant and she was taken into custody by the Kansas City Police Department on March 27. The vehicle was recovered and will be returned to the business. Watts waived extradition and was transported back to Alabama on April 26, where she was taken to the Lee County Detention Facility where she is being held on a $5,000 bond.
