Woman charged with car theft

A Fairfield woman was arrested Wednesday and charged with stealing an automobile.


Cheyenne Rae Brown, 20, was charged with second degree theft and operating a vehicle without a valid driver?s license.


A subject in the 1200 block of Brookville Road alerted law enforcement that a vehicle was taken from his residence at 4:22 a.m. Wednesday. Just seven minutes later, a Jefferson County Sheriff?s deputy located the vehicle, a black Cadillac Seville, southbound in the 1700 block of Brookville Road.


The deputy stopped the vehicle just north of Fairfield, and arrested Brown upon learning she did not have permission to drive the car.
