Hunter, 33 of Niagara Falls, NY for Criminal Mischief 2nd, Reckless Endangerment 2nd, Endangering the Welfare of a Child, Resisting Arrest, Obstruction of Governmental Administration 2nd and Latashia M. Stachura-Lee, 34 of Niagara Falls, NY for Petit Larceny and Obstruction of Governmental Administration 2nd .

On August 11, 2022, Troopers were dispatched to the Dollar General on Military Road in the town of Niagara for a larceny complaint.  Troopers worked with Dollar General loss-prevention. It was found that Stachura-Lee took merchandise, concealed it and passed all points of purchase without paying. Troopers located the suspect vehicle, however the occupants who were identified as Hunter and Stachura-Lee refused to exit their vehicle. Both Hunter and Stachura-Lee deliberately locked their vehicle doors and Hunter intentionally put her vehicle in drive, ultimately striking a state police vehicle. Both parties were taken into custody and transported to SP Niagara for processing.

Hunter and Stachura-Lee were issued appearance tickets returnable to the town of Niagara court for a later date in August 2022.
