GATESVILLE — An anonymous caller helped the Coryell County Sheriff’s Department make two arrests in a squad car hit-and-run case.

Loria Renee Paynter, 22, and Stephen Andrew Jackson, 21, remained in Coryell County Jail on Monday.

They were awaiting arraignment on a felony charge of evading arrest and a misdemeanor charge of deadly conduct.

Their bail had not yet been set.

Paynter and Jackson are suspected of driving a vehicle that crashed into a sheriff’s vehicle Nov. 7 in Gatesville before fleeing the scene, Chief Deputy Joe Blakley said.

The vehicle received about $4,000 worth of damage, but no one was injured.

The sheriff’s office issued warrants for their arrest after the incident.

With assistance from media outlets, someone identified the two shopping and called the office, Blakley said.

They were arrested outside a Gatesville store at 2:48 p.m. Sunday.
