Woman drives stolen car into parking lot full of cops, police say
Tesia Cain and boyfriend Dwayne Durham (WPTV)
Tesia Cain, a mother of three children, drove a stolen car into an annual police charity event Friday right after she picked up her armed boyfriend, according to WPTV.
Cain, 22, drove the stolen car into the parking lot of Walmart where two dozen Boynton Beach police officers were gathered at their Shop-with-a-Cop fundraiser for underprivileged children.
Officers had just been notified that there was a stolen car in the area when Cain drove into the lot with a vehicle matching the description.
Cain’s three children, ages 5, 4 and 4 months, were in the vehicle without seat belts on, as well as Cain’s boyfriend Dwayne Durham, 24, who was in possession of a loaded gun.
The children were put into custody of the father, while Cain and Durham remain in jail.
“That’s irony at it’s best,” police spokeswoman Stephanie Slater told WPBF. “You know, you have a parking lot full of police officers and a stolen car coming right to them, so it was perfect for us.”
Cain faces charges of grand theft auto, marijuana possession and child neglect.
