1 min read

PLYMOUTH — A Billerica woman was arrested Monday afternoon after stealing a car from the Plymouth Police Station parking lot and nearly hitting an officer while attempting to flee.

Kelly Adams, 56, was picked up by an Uber driver from a hotel with no place to stay.

The driver, concerned for her wellbeing, took Adams to the police headquarters for assistance.

After speaking with Officer William Leonard and awaiting a call back from the South Shore Resource Advocacy Center, Adams became agitated, banging on walls inside the station.

The situation escalated when Adams left the lobby, entered the parked Uber car, locked herself inside, and started the vehicle.

Officers, including Sergeant Carney who was nearly hit, attempted to persuade Adams to exit the car to no avail.

Officer Robert Hackett, on duty nearby, intercepted the stolen vehicle and, with help from Officer Leonard, apprehended Adams.

She faces charges of larceny of a motor vehicle, negligent operation, and failure to stop for police.

At booking, it was revealed that Adams was under the influence of alcohol, leading to further charges of operating under the influence, her third offense, and operating with a suspended license from a previous OUI conviction.

While at Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital under police guard, Adams continued her disruptive behavior, shouting at patients and staff despite repeated requests to desist, resulting in an additional charge of disturbing the peace.
