HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (AP) - A Hilton Head Island tree trimmer says he was surprised when a woman jumped in his dump truck and took off.

The Island Packet of Hilton Head Island (https://bit.ly/1ANqkNY ) reports that Bruce Steed was finishing up a job on Friday when one of his employees told him the woman was driving off with the vehicle.

Steed says he told someone to call 911 and followed the truck into Bluffton. Soon, law officers joined the chase.

The Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office says multiple patrol cars were involved in the chase.

The Beaufort County Detention Center website says that 30-year-old Candice Baird was charged with grand larceny of a motor vehicle and failure to stop for law enforcement, among other charges. She was still being held Saturday afternoon. The jail says it couldn’t say whether she had an attorney.
