Fall River woman charged with receiving stolen vehicle after car chase


“DARTMOUTH, MA – On Friday, February 9, 2024, at approximately 2:38 a.m., Dartmouth Police Officer Caden KEHOE attempted to stop a 2007 Toyota Corolla on Old Westport Road after learning that it had been reported stolen.

After the vehicle began to accelerate in an obvious attempt to elude police, Dartmouth Police Sergeant Paul O’DONNELL successfully deployed a tire deflation device used to release air slowly over a safe period of time.

Though the vehicle continued to attempt to elude police with the deflated tires, it eventually came to a safe stop on Hathaway Road near Tradewind Street, where the operator, identified as Janessa QUINO, 21, of Brayton Avenue, Fall River, was arrested and charged with receiving a stolen motor vehicle, reckless operation of a motor vehicle, and failure to stop for the police.”-Dartmouth Police Department.
