UPDATE 8/10/06: Jessica Lee Shamblin was arrested by Kanawha County Sheriff's Deputies in St. Albans Wednesday night. They spotted her walking along Route 35. Police say they received several viewer tips about Shamblin.
She's a known prostitute--according to court records. Now, deputies say she's a car thief, and they need your help to find her. The Kanawha County Sheriff's Department has named Jessica Lee Shamblin one of Charleston's Most Wanted. She's known to go by "Jessie" on the streets.
Shamblin is charged with grand larceny. Deputies say she was staying with Anthony Hairston at the Route 21 Motel in Sissonville last week. Hairston told police he woke up one night--and his 1999 Ford Explorer was stolen, along with his car keys. The SUV is red, has chrome wheels, and has a small dent in the front right fender. Deputies believe Shamblin took it.
"The moral of this story is a person needs to be cautious, especially when they involve themselves with strangers," said Lt. Sean Crosier with the Kanawha County Sheriff's Department. "In this particular case, this girl has a very questionable history, and she ultimately took this fellow's keys and stole his vehicle."
