A herd of 16 cows helped police officers in Florida corral a fleeing suspect who ran through their pasture on Sunday night.
A Seminole County Sheriff’s helicopter captured the chase on a night-vision camera as the crew gave play-by-play to officers on the ground chasing the female suspect, local NBC affiliate WPTZ reported.
„If you see a large group of cows, they’re literally following her and chasing her,“ a crew member can be heard telling Sanford Police Department officers on the ground.
The cows eventually ran suspected car thief Jennifer Kaufman into a fence, where police were waiting to arrest the 46-year-old.
„A herd of cattle provided law enforcement a big assist,“ the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office wrote on its Facebook page.
An arrest report shows that the SUV Kaufman was riding in crashed near a pasture during a police pursuit.
The Subaru had stolen tags and cops found 1.3 grams of cocaine and other drug paraphernalia inside, according to police.
Police arrested two other people who were in the car, too— one of them with the help of a K-9. The Orlando Sentinel reported Jamie Young, 46, and Erin Thomas, 38 are being held with at the Seminole County jail.
Kaufman is being held on a $4,500 bond. Charges against her include resisting an officer and drug possession.
