T. GEORGE — Two Washington County women were arrested in Mesquite, Nevada, after officers found the pair with a vehicle reportedly stolen from a dealership in St. George, while an Oregon couple was also arrested in a reportedly stolen vehicle in Mesquite two days before.

A Hurricane woman, 34-year-old Ashley Dawn Sorensen, and 29-year-old Hayley Durbin, of St. George, were both arrested for felony possession of a stolen vehicle, misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia, and misdemeanor possession of stolen property and were transported to the Clark County Detention Center in Las Vegas since the arrest involved felony charges.

The arrest stems from an incident reported on March 25 when officers in Mesquite responded to a local car dealership shortly after 2:30 a.m. Emergency dispatch had received a call reporting two suspicious individuals who appeared to be looking for cars to break into, Mesquite Police Sgt. Wyatt Oliver said.

Officers arrived to find two women hiding inside a parked vehicle and when asked for identification, both suspects provided officers with false information, according to a statement released by authorities.
