Woman Flees Deputies, Crashes Stolen Car With Flakka Inside: BSO

A South Florida woman was arrested after leading deputies on a brief chase that ended with her crashing a stolen car with a bag of flakka inside, authorities said.

Quakiiyas Tigner, 20, is facing several charges including grand theft auto, possession of PVP (flakka), resisting arrest, driving without a valid driver's license, attempting to flee law enforcement and leaving the scene of a crash involving damage to property, Broward Sheriff's Office officials said.

Tigner was being held without bond Thursday, jail records showed. It was unknown if she has an attorney.

According to an arrest report, two BSO detectives were conducting surveillance in the 200 block of Southwest 2nd Court in Pompano Beach when they spotted 24-year-old Anthony Demps, who was wanted on five felony warrants.

As detectives watched, a car driven by Tigner pulled up and honked the horn and Demps got into the passenger side. The car left and when deputies tried to stop the car on Southwest 2nd Place, the car fled the scene at a high rate of speed, the report said.

Tigner lost control of the car while fleeing, crashing into a bus bench and fence. She then tried to run away on foot but was taken into custody, the report said.

While fleeing the car, Tigner left behind a baggie containing flakka, the report said. The car was discovered to have been stolen from Fort Lauderdale.

Tigner told deputies she had paid $200 for the car but knew something was wrong with it, the report said. She also admitted she knew Demps was wanted on active warrants, the report said.
