HEFLIN - Heflin police Monday helped recover a car stolen from Georgia and charged the driver with receiving stolen property, according to the department.

Police from Carrollton, Ga. told local officers Monday afternoon that they were tracking a stolen car that appeared to be in Heflin. The car, a white Chevrolet Impala, was stolen from a car lot and had a GPS device.

Heflin police found the car parked on the 900 block of Ross Street, just a block from the police department.

“We put officers in businesses around the car and a car on each end of town,” said Heflin Police Chief A. J. Benefield.

Then they waited.

After a couple of hours, Marquina Walker, 30, from Carrollton, arrived to the car and got in, Benefield said. The police charged her with receiving stolen property, a felony, Benefield said.

She is currently in the Cleburne County Jail on a $10,000 bond, he said.
