A Prattville woman was arrested on Monday for stealing a pistol the same day she made bond for a Montgomery shootout that left an innocent woman paralyzed.

Ji'Mecya Ford, 19, of Prattville, is one of five people charged in the roadside shooting that caused an innocent bystander to be struck by a stray bullet and paralyzed.

In April, Amy Dicks was struck by a bullet in a crossfire while stopped at a red light on the Atlanta Highway. Dicks was rushed to the hospital, where she was treated for her wounds. The family afterward announced that Dicks was paralyzed from the chest down as a result of the shooting. She is still recovering from her injuries.

Ford, along with Je'Kwon Foster, 20, and Tyrone Davis, Jr., 18, were all charged with discharging a firearm into an unoccupied vehicle. Michael Johnson, 20, and Javaris Anderson, 22, both of Prattville, are charged with first-degree assault and two counts of discharging a firearm into an occupied vehicle.

Ford was released on a $15,000 bond on May 22. According to a new arrest warrant in Autauga County, on the same day of her release, Ford attempted to or succeeded in stealing a Glock 19 handgun. Ford was arrested on Monday and placed in the Autauga County Jail.

Court records say Ford is held on a $10,000 bond. However, the circuit judge in Montgomery has ordered Ford to be held without bail until a hearing involving her bond for the April shooting.
