Police have charged Latisha Raquel Smith, 33, with felony taking of a motor vehicle.

Police officers received a report Sunday of a stolen Ford Transit Van from the 100 block of U.S. 90, a news release from the department said. A short time later, officers spotted the gold van at Howard Avenue and Crawford Street. Smith was driving the van and was its only occupant, the news release said.

Officers arrested Smith and took her to the Harrison County jail after Justice Court Judge Albert Fountain set a bond of $25,000.
