Crystal Carr, 39, was a passenger in a vehicle pulled over for a traffic violation at approximately 3:41 am near Smith Road and Highway 90.

Deputies were speaking to the driver out of the vehicle and attempted to make contact with Carr who was fidgeting in the passenger seat. One of the deputies noticed a .22 revolver in the passenger door map pocket next to Carr’s leg. When the deputy reached for the weapon, Carr jumped into the driver’s seat and fled. The deputy was able to take possession of the weapon before she fled the scene.
