UPDATE @ 6:55 a.m.: The woman that reportedly attempted to steal an occupied vehicle from a gas station on Wayne Avenue and hit two other parked vehicles in the process has been identified.

Tracy L. Tolliver, 32, is currently in Montgomery County Jail on charges of abduction, theft, and parole violation, according to the jail website.


A woman reportedly attempted to steal an occupied vehicle, and as a result, crashed into two other vehicles at a Dayton gas station Tuesday morning.

Officials responded to Sunoco gas station, located at 1502 Wayne Ave., on reports of a crash around 12:45 a.m., per initial reports.

Dayton police say the woman reportedly jumped inside the driver seat of a parked vehicle that was occupied with one passenger. Due to the passenger not knowing the woman, an argument reportedly ensued and she attempted to pull off in the vehicle.  She then reportedly hit two other vehicles in the parking lot before fleeing on foot.

The woman was reportedly tackled to the ground by people nearby at the gas station until police arrived.

She was taken to an area hospital with minor injuries, officials say.

No word on if she will be taken to jail or cited for the incident.
