STATESBORO, GA (WTOC) -

A Statesboro teen has been arrested and charged after taking a car without permission from her home in the Cedarwood Acres mobile home park, according to the Bulloch County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies were notified Friday that Cynthia Lynn Vincent, 17, had taken a 1996 Toyota Camry.

The complainant told deputies that she was following the stolen vehicle into Statesboro. Deputies were dispatched and Deputy Mark Guarino made contact with the stolen vehicle in the area of east Main Street and Northside Drive East.

Vincent took off in the stolen vehicle from Guarino, according to the sheriff's office. She recklessly disregarded several traffic control devices as the pursuit continued down east Main Street, according to the sheriff's office.

She was forced to stop on east Main Street at Veterans Memorial Parkway and was taken into custody. Vincent was taken to the Bulloch County jail for processing.

Vincent was charged with one count of theft by taking motor vehicle; one count of fleeing and attempting to elude (felony); one count of reckless driving; one count of disobeying a traffic control device and one count of driving without a valid license.

There were no injuries or property damage in the chase. The stolen Camry was returned to its owner.
