A woman was arrested Monday after she was found passed out in a stolen car parked in front of Neshoba County Sheriff Tommy Waddell’s home.

Elizabeth Pagen Stokes, 30, 120 Davidson Court, Crossville, Tenn., was arrested Monday on Road 321 outside of Union in Neshoba County for vehicle theft after she was discovered passed out in the vehicle reported stolen earlier Monday morning from a residence in the Johnsonville community located off of Highway 485.

Upon being arrested and “coming to her senses” she reportedly told officers, “Damn, I parked in front of Sheriff Tommy Waddell’s house.”

Waddell said that his department received a report Monday morning from a victim who reported that sometime Sunday evening or Monday morning his vehicle was stolen from the yard of his residence on Mississippi 485 between Mississippi 15 and Mississippi 21.

Around 10 a.m. on Monday, Union Police Chief Billy Pat Walker was notified of a suspicious vehicle parked in front of the Sheriff’s residence off of Road 321. Walker then notified Waddell of the vehicle and Waddell told Walker that the vehicle had been reported stolen earlier in the day.

When officers approached the vehicle, Stokes was apparently “passed out” and was taken into custody without incident.

Waddell said that Stokes is familiar with Neshoba County because she lives here and in Tennessee.
