SALISBURY, Md. – A South Carolina woman was arrested in Salisbury last week after she was found driving a stolen vehicle.

According to the Wicomico County Sheriff’s Office, just before midnight on July 3rd, a deputy stopped a 2002 Kia Spectra in the area of Nanticoke Road and Crooked Oak Lane after observing that the license plate had been replaced with a piece of cardboard with a registration plate number inscribed on it. The deputy made contact with the driver, 60-year-old Joy Mills of Myrtle Beach, SC, who reported that the original license plates had been stolen.
