According to Smith County Sheriff Larry Smith, Pamela Medlock, 59, was arrested on Monday after being stopped by a Texas State Trooper on I-20 near Colorado City, Texas.

“She was supposedly headed to Arizona,” Smith said.

Officials said she was arrested after detectives interviewed her, and a recommended bond has been set at $250,000. She remains in Mitchell County custody as of Tuesday.

In addition to being viewed on security footage from a Tyler Walmart, Smith said Medlock was seen with Zachariah Sutton in a Dallas toy store and it is believed they stopped and slept at roadside parks before being stopped in Mitchell County.
