Woman Hides from Police in Bag

Jefferson City Police looking for one suspect, ended up netting two others– one in a trash bag. Three people were arrested Friday as the police department’s Community Action Team served outstanding warrants at an apartment complex on Buena Vista Street. Around 11:00am, police were at the public housing complex and looking for Laquietta Grant, 20, wanted on eight outstanding warrants, including one for robbery. While there, they smelled marijuana burning, believed to be coming out from one of the bedrooms. The people inside refused to give consent for a search, so after obtaining a search warrant, police found Antonio Banks, 22, a felon, allegedly trying to sell drugs. Police say Banks had 12 baggies of marijuana and a firearm in his backpack. Felons are prohibited from having a gun according to state law. Banks was arrested. And as police were clearing the apartment to look for any other suspicious activities, they looked into a closet and found a woman hiding in a trash bag. That woman, Jacqueline McIntosh, 23, was taken into custody. McIntosh had two outstanding warrants, possibly for theft. As of Friday night, McIntosh bonded out and the other two remained in Cole County Jail. Charges are pending.
