  • Department arrested a woman who allegedly threw a snake at a driver and stole their car

Police say a woman stole a vehicle after throwing a snake at the driver, then crashed through barricades set up for a pole-vaulting exhibition in SC.

Officers were called to investigate a carjacking report at 8:20 p.m. Friday, according to a Greenville Police Deptartment news release.

Authorities say the suspect demanded a woman's keys and then threw a live black snake at her.

Police pursued the alleged carjacker and quickly caught up to the suspect and arrested her.

Authorities estimate the damage caused one day before the weekend event to be over $17,000.

Moreno-Berrios was nabbed a short time later by officers with the Greenville Police Department after she struck a moving vehicle holding a mother and daughter in an attempt to flee, cops said.

Moreno-Berrios took the SUV from the victim and sped off - with the snake along for the ride. They say she was injured in Friday's crash but was discharged from hospital on Monday.

"The freakish incident garnered widespread community attention not only for the chase through the heavily-populated route the suspect traveled, but also because Moreno-Berrios carjacked the Honda CR-V by throwing sticks and what turned out to be a live, non-venomous black snake at the victim", the statement said.

Greenville police say that because the snake was alive and non-venomous, they released the animal in nearby woods. She was charged with carjacking and malicious damage to personal property, as well as traffic citations for a hit and run, failure to stop for blue lights, resisting arrest, driving on a closed street and reckless driving.

She was being held on a $25,000 bond.
