A Gloucester woman wanted on a felony charge led law enforcement officers on a pursuit Saturday that was terminated but she was taken into custody Monday morning at a local Waste Management convenience center. She now faces several charges, including four felonies.

According to warrants and other documents filed in Gloucester District Court, Brenda Marshall Carter, 62, of Ware Neck, had an outstanding felony warrant. A Gloucester Sheriff’s deputy saw and recognized her driving in the area of Dutton Road and Burkes Pond Road on Saturday and attempted to stop her knowing she was wanted. 

Carter led law enforcement on a chase until the pursuit was terminated for safety reasons prior to officers reaching the intersection of Route 14 and Main Street.

On Monday morning, according to documents filed with Carter’s arrest warrants, Carter was recognized while driving a white Nissan pickup and dropping off trash at the courthouse convenience center at the end of Beehive Drive.

The Gloucester Sheriff’s Office was notified and a deputy pulled into the convenience center’s exit and activated his emergency lights to stop Carter. Carter pulled to his front bumper and stopped but would not turn the vehicle off and had the doors locked, the documents said. 

One deputy broke the passenger’s side window to unlock the doors and another deputy opened the driver’s side door. Carter then put the truck in reverse and drove backwards, with the open door striking the deputy, and backed into another vehicle in the lot.
