Detectives say Williams went to a Baton Rouge car dealership Tuesday, July 20, and convinced a member of the cleaning crew that she was an employee there.

Surveillance video shows she was allowed inside the building and entered the sales manager’s office where she was able to steal several sets of keys, her arrest warrant states.
