The Reel Life: Stealing a car to get to court

23 Nov 2011

The Reel Life has a car, so we usually never need a ride anywhere. Should we need a ride to court, however, the last thing we'd do is steal a car.

According to the Albany Times Union, an Albany woman and two friends allegedly took a stolen car to court last Wednesday. Pamela D. Copes was due in court to answer charges that included unlawfully fleeing a police officer in the third degree, reckless driving and aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle in the third degree and unlawful possession of marijuana.

Copes didn't have a ride to answer those charges, so she rounded up Michael Oglesby and Andrea M. Dixon to help her break into a white 2007 Chevrolet Impala four-door sedan. Unfortunately for the trio, the Impala had the OnStar global positioning system.

Police found the unoccupied car in the parking lot of the town's Public Safety Center. All three were arrested. Copes is charged with criminal possession of stolen property in the third degree while Oglesby and Dixon both face a misdemeanor count of third-degree unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.

The Reel Life sympathizes with the plight of Ms. Copes. It's a classic "damned if you do, damned if you don't" situation.
