Woman Allegedly Tries to Elude Custody
Police say she ran out a door and across a yard when they tried to arrest her on a no-bail warrant.
A woman tried to escape from a Jefferson Township police officer when he attempted to arrest her on a no-bail warrant for failure to report to court ordered rehab, according to authorities.
Officer Sean Krater went to Crescent Drive on the warrant for Brittany Muccia, 22, of Jefferson on Sept. 21. He was admitted to the home, where he found Muccia asleep, police said. Krater woke her up and informed her of the warrant, and she ran out the door and across the back yard of the home, police said.
Police said they searched the area and found Muccia a few streets away, where they apprehended her.
Muccia was taken to police headquarters and issued a criminal summons for resisting arrest and hindering apprehension. She was released to the Morris County Prosecutor's Office on the warrant.
