Adairsville woman arrested in Floyd County after failing to return vehicle rented in Florida

According to a Floyd County Police Department incident report, On December 12th, 2022, at 1:10 PM, Officer Wade was dispatched to 201 Shannon Road in reference to a stolen vehicle (2020 Black Hyundai Tuscan) from Florida. While attempting to locate the property, she located a black SUV in the driveway of 179 Shannon Road that matched the description that was provided by dispatch. The officer then confirmed the license plate with dispatch. Florida had not submitted the vehicle as stolen yet but would be sending it. Officer Wade reported, “[I] spoke with an officer from Florida that provided me with the GA Drivers License for Candace Annette Cromer, 40, Adairsville, and stated that she rented the car from a service called “TURO” and never returned the vehicle. Once [I] ran Cromer with dispatch advised me that she had two felony warrants for her arrest. While attempting to make contact with someone [I] could hear someone coughing inside. While waiting for a backup unit, [I] was informed to call the officer from Florida. The officer from Florida stated that he was sending the hit. PFC Jackson then arrived on the scene. While trying to make contact with someone in residence, [I] walked to the rear of the trailer to try knocking on the back door. Cromer then walked out of the front door and to the rear, where PFC Jackson and [I] were. Cromer then informed me that she was aware of her warrants and willingly allowed me to place her into handcuffs with no issue.” Cromer then informed officers that she rented the vehicle in Florida when she was released from rehab. Cromer provided them with emails from TURO about returning the vehicle. Cromer had agreed that she would be renting the vehicle from December 7th, 2022, to December 8th, 2022, at 2:00 PM and only to drive 200 miles. Cromer then drove the vehicle back to Georgia and did not open or reply to the emails where TURO was attempting to reach her. Cromer was charged with felony probation violation x2, theft by bringing stolen property into the state, and theft by receiving stolen property.
