Emily Eads, 22, was arrested Sept. 14, according to Moniteau County Sheriff's Department reports.
The theft was reported at a residence on Bird Haven Road near Centertown. The victims told deputies a woman had come to their home and driven away with their vehicle.
Deputies patrolled the area and later were called to a gas station in High Point, where a suspicious person had been spotted.
When deputies got to the station, they noticed a vehicle that matched the one reported stolen from Bird Haven Road. A woman matching the description of the one who allegedly took the vehicle was located inside the station. It was Eads, and she was taken into custody.
