Excellent work, Balt City police! Another violent murdering scumbag off the streets.Investigators soon found the car she is suspected of driving: a 2001 Mazda 626 LX with Maryland license plates. They also found damage on the car they believe came from striking Barnes, police said.
Police credited tips from the public and media attention with the arrest. Maryland court records show that Lucas was arrested on a second-degree assault charge on April 19 that was not prosecuted.
