FULTON - Police arrested a woman after she allegedly attempted to steal a car from a shop, then broke into two homes while trying to flee Monday.
Jasmine Allen, 31, of Fulton, was taken into custody on two counts of burglary, one count of property damage, and one count of assault, along with a number of other charges.
Allen was also arrested for alleged parole violations from the St. Louis area.
