LAMAR COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - A woman is behind bars facing multiple felony charges after a weekend chase in Lamar County.

Amanda Bullock, 31, of Lamar County fleeing, was arrested Saturday and charged with eluding officers in a motor vehicle and receiving stolen property, according to Lamar County Sheriff Danny Rigel.

"Deputies got a call of a burglary in progress on Purvis-Columbia Road, when they spotted her, she took off in a stolen vehicle," said Rigel. "They finally got her stopped on Max White Road, and she jumped out of the car and fled on foot."
