A local woman who went to a man's house after an encounter in a local bar was accused of auto theft after she allegedly took his car and went to Jacksonville to buy drugs.

Jennifer Anne Turner, 47, of Southwest 139th Street, reportedly went to the home of the victim after they met at Our Place Saloon. The man went out back briefly, and when he came back the woman and his girlfriend's car were gone.

The girlfriend was being treated at a hospital in South Florida and was not home at the time.

Police traced the woman to her place of employment, a pet grooming facility, but she had called in and said she wouldn't be at work. After several back-and-forth attempts, she turned herself in on Nov. 3 and was charged with auto theft. The car had damage to back where she had apparently backed into a neighbor's vehicle.
