PHENIX CITY, AL (WTVM) – A native of Louisiana is on the run, police and local bondsman need your help capturing her.

Twenty-eight-year old Michelle J. MaGuire came to the area after Hurricane Katrina pummeled parts of the Big Easy. The path she is taking has landed her in trouble with local law enforcement. 

"First of all it's about doing the right thing and showing up in court and doing what you say you're supposed to do. It saves the taxpayers money, it saves the courts time and money and of course, it saves the bonding companies money," says Joe Williams with AAA Bonding Company out of Harris County.

He says Maguire is wanted for possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute and has failed to appear in an Alabama court.    

Williams says, "She is wanted out of Phenix City and we want her as quick as we can get her."     

Maguire is 5'3 tall and weighs about 150 pounds and has a snake tattoo on her chest. 

Williams says her family lives in the Columbus and Phenix City area and believes Maguire is hiding out with some of them.

"We know she's in the area. I actually went to her sister's house in Phenix City last night and she ran out the back door on me."

If you have any information concerning Maguire's whereabouts you are asked to call (706) 594-0554.
