Officers followed her out of the interview room only to find her caught by another officer in the hallway.

Officers say Basnett was part of a suspected car theft ring and using stolen credit cards.

Documents filed in the case say officers found her in a traffic stop with keys to a car that had recently been stolen from a garage, a stolen backpack, and an expandable baton.

Jenks police say they have seen a decrease in this type of theft since her arrest.
