OCALA, Fla. -

Florida Highway Patrol officials have arrested a probation violator from Mississippi. They also arrested the woman they say helped him flee.

Trooper Shane Crawford stopped to help what he thought was a disabled vehicle in Central Florida on Saturday. He ran a computer check on the car's tags and found the vehicle was from Mississippi.

Authorities said the suspect gave a fake name and birthdate. After contacting the Mississippi Department of Corrections, the Ocala Star Banner reports the suspect was identified as 32-year-old Gary Sneed. The MDOC says Sneed was sought for not reporting to his probation officer.

Authorities said Holly Morrison stole a car to help Sneed escape.

The couple had numerous warrants out for the escape, including manufacturing of methamphetamine and grand theft auto charges.
