The Muhlenberg County Sheriff's Office says a Greenville, Kentucky woman was arrested over the weekend after stealing a truck and then fleeing from deputies on 

The sheriff's office says the incident began on Saturday when deputies responded to a home on Luzerne Depoy Road, where a woman had reportedly entered two homes, stolen a truck, and driven it through the door of a building.

The sheriff's office says an investigation determined that the suspect, 41-year-old Tiana Duncan from Greenville, had driven the stolen truck from the first location to a nearby farm in Bremen.

After the stolen truck became stuck in the mud, the sheriff's office said Duncan made a failed attempt to take a kayak and make her escape in a nearby creek, only to then steal a John Deere tractor and try to drive away on it.

MCSO says that after destroying three driveways, Duncan lowered the bucket on the tractor, causing it to become stuck in a culvert.

The sheriff's office says that's when property owners stayed with Duncan until Deputies arrived on the scene.

Duncan was arrested and charged with Theft by Unlawful Taking (auto), Theft By Unlawful Taking Farm Equipment, Public Intoxication, and 3 counts of Criminal Mischief 3rd Degree, Criminal Mischief 1st Degree, Burglary 3rd Degree, and 2 counts of Burglary 2nd Degree.
