Edmonson Voice Staff Report:
A Roundhill woman wanted for attempted burglary has been apprehended by law enforcement, according to the Edmonson County Sheriff's Office.
Officials said that Jennifer Shepherd, (32), was arrested on an Edmonson County warrant on Friday by the Grayson County Sheriff's Office for Attempted Burglary-first degree and Wanton Endangerment-first degree.
According to the Edmonson County Sheriff, on the night of October 14, Shepherd, who had her two juvenile children with her, wrecked a vehicle in the Mount Pleasant Cemetery that she had allegedly previously stolen from Grayson County.
Shepherd reportedly then fled the scene of the accident with two children, according to officials. Authorities also said the woman armed with a shotgun, attempted to force her way into a house on Big Reedy Road and demanded that the homeowners give them the keys to their car. After a struggle on the porch Shepherd reportedly fled when she saw a law enforcement vehicle approaching.
Shepherd was lodged in Hart county jail where she awaits arraignment in Edmonson District Court, scheduled for Tuesday. She is being held on a $10,000 cash bond.
