A Dothan woman faces theft charges after a 2012 Lincoln MKX was stolen last month.

Amanda Kay Gunter, 31, was arrested Monday and charged with first-degree theft of property.

Police say Gunter and two other women had just met and were riding around the Ross Clark Circle with plans of renting a motel room. However, before they could arrive at a motel, an argument among the women broke out.

“The investigation determined at some point in time during the disagreement the owner of the vehicle exited the vehicle and Ms. Gunter took off in the vehicle,” said Dothan police Lt. Doug Magill. “A warrant was issued for Ms. Gunter’s arrest, and she was taken into custody Monday.”

Magill said the vehicle was located in the 3700 block of Ross Clark Circle.

Gunter was released from the Houston County Jail on a $5,000 bond.
