Woman spots her own car, calls 911

CONYERS, Ga. – A Newton County woman inadvertently helped police nab a pair of thieves believed connected to numerous car thefts from the side of Interstate 20.

Temiya Hurst happened to be driving on I-20 when she spotted her stolen SUV on a trailer. On the 911 call can be heard telling the dispatcher she was alongside her own stolen vehicle.

“And they have it loaded up on a trailer and I’m literally on the highway behind them,” said Hurst on the 911 call.

Dashcam video from a Conyers Police squad car of the stolen SUV on a stolen trailer pretty much was the same thing Temiya Hurst saw when she called 911 to report the theft last Monday night.

“And they have it loaded up. I look up and I noticed on the back of their U-Haul they had my truck,” said Hurst. “I didn’t believe it at first.”

Hurst said she was headed to her job as a custodian at Heritage High School to pick up her boyfriend when she spotted her SUV on I-20. She said she left the SUV on the side of the interstate a couple of days earlier after she’d run out of gas. When she spotted it on the trailer at first she thought a tow company had come to retrieve her vehicle before her uncle was supposed to do the same. Then she spotted the busted out passenger side window.

“I followed them one exit up because I noticed that they noticed I was following them and I realized it could have been a dangerous situation,” said Hurst.

Captain Jackie Dunn, with Conyers Police said everyone was surprised by the incredible coincidence.

“She was astounded she was as surprised as the rest of us,” said Captain Dunn.

He said the arrests of 30-year-old Omayeli Anika-Pemu of Winder and 44-year-old Jermaine Horton, of Birmingham, Alabama, immediately after Ms. Hurst called 911 has provided new leads in some current cases of vehicles being stolen from the side of I-20.

“We will now go check these gentleman’s salvage records at the recycle yards and we’ll try to back track and see if we can associate those thefts with them,” said Captain Dunn.

He said both suspects are facing theft by taking charges and likely other charges soon.

Captain Dunn told FOX 5 News their arrests would not have been possible had it not been for the coincidental intervention of Temiya Hurst

“What are the odds of you it was just a freak coincidence I just happened to get on the highway and it’s right there in front of me. It was a blessing,” said Hurst.

She said she is now getting rides from family members and friends because her 2001 Mitsubishi Montero was badly damaged when it was stolen.

The men were taken to the Newton County Detention Center because the crime originated in Newton County and made its way to nearby Conyers.

He buried himself in the mud to escape cops, they say. He forgot about his feet | Miami Herald

A traffic stop in the town of Conyers, Ga., went from routine to “rather unusual” in just few hours on March 2.

Conyers police said Joe Hobson Jr. was suspected of trafficking drugs out of a local neighborhood, and was stopped by a detective on the highway.

But when the detective pulled him over, Hobson allegedly took off, disappearing into the property of a nearby business.

Police, alongside sheriff’s deputies, set up a perimeter around the area and began to search. It was two hours before they finally spotted the suspect again – or rather, his feet protruding out from a “cold, muddy” drainage creek.

He was charged with possession of 29 grams of cocaine, 7 grams of methamphetamine, 12 ounces of marijuana, oxycodine and liquid codine, cops said. Police said he also had two handguns, including one which was allegedly stolen, and about $4,000 cash on his person.

Holly Hunter Is Keeping It Real

Holly Hunter talks about her film and TV career with such a casual, I-can’t-believe-I’m-still-working attitude, that you almost forget just how damn good she is. Almost. From her breakout role as a baby-crazy cop in the Coen Brothers’ sweetly absurd Raising Arizona to, more than 30 years later, her Independent Spirit–nominated turn as a mother fighting for her comatose daughter in The Big Sick, Hunter, 59, has defied the gloomy cliché that compelling roles for female actors only evaporate over time.

The four-time Oscar nominee and winner (for her lead role in Jane Campion’s stunning 1993 film The Piano) and six-time Emmy nominee sat down with Vulture in Los Angeles last November for a live SAG-AFTRA Conversations event, and again in February, to discuss her return to TV in Alan Ball’s new HBO drama Here and Now, how the seeds of her love affair with acting were planted while growing up in Georgia, and why she never wants her face to be a source of mystery. “I don’t want anyone to ever wonder who I am,” she says. “I’m not interested in fooling people.” Continue reading

Ohio teacher put on leave after lynching remark to black student
