Coweta Police Arrest Woman for Damaging Business with Vehicle
Coweta authorities arrested a woman accused of damaging a business during a hit and run incident in September.
Coweta Police placed Jonlyn Claire cook under arrest on complaints of leaving the scene of a property damage collision. She is accused of driving an SUV and causing damage to property owned by Sticky Buns Bakery in downtown Coweta.
According to a report from the Coweta American, Cook reportedly jumped the curb and struck a light pole, a metal trash can, a newspaper stand and a dining table with multiple chairs.
Local authorities stated they followed a fluid trail east on Highway 51-B and continued around the southern curve to the area of 158th Street, at which time Wagoner County deputies picked up the search.
Cook's vehicle was located at a residence on 321st E. Ave. It had extensive damage on the front end consistent with hitting a light pole.
A green metal trash can was still pinned to the front bumper and a reverse partial imprint of "Coweta American" was found on the passenger side of the front bumper, according to the newspaper.
Cook admitted to authorities she was the one driving the vehicle and said she did not know what to do after the incident and continued home.
