Police say a 24-year-old woman has been charged with carjacking and assault after taking a car and trying to rob a Southaven business, all while wearing swimming attire.

Police Chief Tom Long said Morgan Haley of Horn Lake forced a woman to give up her car Thursday.

Long said the victim gave up the car without a fight to a bikini-clad Haley, asking only for time to remove her young children from inside.

Long said Haley then drove the stolen car to a business, where she told employees she had a gun and demanded money. The employees did not believe Haley’s claim and restrained her until officers arrived.

Police said Haley appeared to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of the carjacking and attempted robbery.
