‘I was looking for ISIS terrorists!’ claims American woman caught stealing

She was seen stealing parked cars at a high school in the town of Hurly, Mississippi

The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria’s (ISIS) threat is apparently spilling over every corner in the world -- even to the least imaginable places such as a student parking lot in rural Mississippi.

Or at least that's what one woman thinks.

Lisa Carol Roche, a 41-year-old American, claimed she was looking for ISIS fighters when she was caught stealing from students’ cars at East High School in Hurly, Mississippi, on Friday, reported the Sun Herald.

She was found with a pair of sunglasses and other personal items she allegedly stolen from the parked vehicles.

Roche was taken to Jackson County Adult Detention Center until a court hearing takes place. The woman could face up to five years in jail and a $10,000 fine if convicted with commercial automobile robbery.

This was not Roche’s first brush with the law; she has been previously arrested for misdemeanor careless driving, embezzlement and felony burglary, The Independent reported the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department saying.

It remains unknown whether her claims about looking for ISIS militants would be used in court.

ISIS, which has seized swaths of land in Iraq and Syria, has previously threatened to wage war on the U.S. in retribution to the U.S.-led air strikes in Iraq.
