Seewillow Jackson, 23, of North Myrtle Beach, and Shatisha Jackson, 32, of Atlantic Beach, were taken into custody after their vehicle got stuck in a field, according to Lt. Raul Denis with HCPD.
Police received a call that a woman was knocking on a door for help with her vehicle, and residents in the area told police they saw some people run into the woods, according to the police report. Shatisha Jackson was quickly located and detained. Officers found Seewillow Jackson in a wooded area nearby, where she had attempted to elude officers until she got stuck in a drainage pond, the report states.
