Police Arrest Woman Accused of Stealing Tractor Trailer from Gas Station

A woman is arrested after leading police on a chase in a stolen Semi.

The Knox County Sheriff’s Office says Amy Butler-Cordray was arrested near the Interstate 40 and Interstate 81 split following the chase that began around 10 o’clock yesterday (Tuesday) morning from the Pilot on the 2800 block of East Governor John Sevier Highway according to our TV News Partner, WVLT.

The suspect refused to stop for deputies who were joined by Jefferson County Deputies and multiple attempts to deploy spike strips were unsuccessful but finally worked when the vehicle went into a ditch.

Butler-Cordray was arrested and was also in possession of a gray pit bull puppy that was reportedly taken from a stolen vehicle in Memphis which was recovered by KCSO deputies a short distance from where the semi-truck and trailer were stolen.
