Ida Woman Arrested After Driving Off Boat Ramp With Stolen Truck, Swam Away
An Ida woman turned herself in to the Caddo Sheriff’s Office after late night on the run with a stolen travel trailer and a swim in Black Bayou.
Caddo Sheriff’s deputies tried to stop 27-year-old Sarah Bridges, of Ida, who was driving a Dodge pickup truck pulling a travel trailer on Highway 1 in Vivian. Bridges was swerving back and forth into the oncoming lane on Myra Myrtis Road.
She then pulled into Noah Tyson Park, where she hit a few trees, a barbecue grill, and then drove off the boat ramp into Black Bayou.
The truck was reported stolen in Shreveport in April, according to deputies. The travel trailer had just been stolen when Bridges was spotted by Caddo authorities.
Bridges was booked into the Caddo Correctional Center for felony theft of the trailer, aggravated flight, and hit and run. She could face more charges for the stolen truck.
