  POINT PLEASANT BEACH – Police said a woman attempted to steal a car while two people were in it, and the driver was inside an ice cream shop.

  The incident happened at around 6:30 p.m. on April 26 on Route 88. Police said Jaymee Tice, 37, of Brick entered a vehicle and tried to drive away with it. There was an adult and a minor passenger in the vehicle at the time. The driver had gone inside Sundaes Ice Cream and left the engine running.

  The two adults had to forcibly remove Tice from the vehicle while she threatened to kill them and infect them with the coronavirus. She then walked over to people standing in line outside the store and threatened to infect them.

  She left the area on foot but was found shortly by two officers. She refused to comply with officers’ directions and repeatedly said she had “COVID.”

  Ultimately she was transported to Ocean Medical Center in Brick for evaluation. She was also charged with 2nd degree Terroristic Threats and Criminal Trespass. After further investigation, she was charged with Carjacking and Burglary, and is currently wanted on this warrant. Charges are merely accusations until proven in a court of law.

  Anyone with information is requested to call the Point Pleasant Police Department at 732-892-0060.
