FLORENCE, SC (WMBF) – A woman who was found in the backseat of a stolen car after the driver fled from Florence County deputies on Tuesday was arrested; deputies found she had pending warrants after her minor children tested positive for illicit drugs last year, according to Sheriff Kenney Boone.

Tonya Parker, 34, of Florence, was arrested by deputies on February 4 and charged with trespassing and public disorderly conduct, according to Facebook post from Florence Sheriff Kenney Boone.

Deputies had attempted to stop a vehicle matching the description of a vehicle involved in an earlier verbal altercation, the post states. The driver refused to stop and led the deputy on a short chase before turning into a driveway on Misty View Lane and fleeing on foot.

Two other occupants, Parker and 34-year-old Florence man Billy Norris, remained in the vehicle and were loud and disorderly, according to Sheriff Boone. Deputies arrested both of them at the scene.

It was later determined that Parker had pending FCSO arrest warrants for unlawful neglect of a child. According to investigators, between May 1, 2013 and September 11, 2013, Parker's minor children tested positive for illicit drugs.

The investigation into Tuesday's incident is ongoing, and additional arrests and charges are possible, Boone stated.

    Several people who live on the side streets of Ocean Blvd. in North Myrtle Beach recently received a letter saying they need to get rid of obstructions in front of their homes. The city says that’s because the space could be used for public parking. Around 30 people came out to the city council meeting on Monday to speak out about the issue.
