Friday Mar 07, 2014 9:54am
SR 127 and 400 North • Angola, IN

By: Jim Measel

(ANGOLA) - A woman is facing five charges including four Class D felonies in Steuben County after she was accused of leading police on a short chase Friday morning with her one year son was in the back seat. Five formal charges have been filed against 27-year-old Heather Amber-Mae Blessing. At first, Indiana State Police say she was from Ann Arbor, Michigan but court records show a Bloomington address. The charges include neglect of a dependent, O.W.I, possession of stolen property and resisting law enforcement. She was taken to jail following a medical examination at Cameron Hospital. State Police say the chase started in Angola when Trooper Matt Lazoff tried to stop a car at about 2:00am for multiple traffic violations. They say Blessing pulled her vehicle into the Wal-Mart parking lot before accelerating and heading back north on North Wayne Street. She then lost control near 400 North and ran off the east side of the road where the car then got stuck in the snow. Blessing allegedly ignored numerous verbal commands given by Lazoff as she got out and ran to the rear passenger door. She was taken into custody by Lazoff and other officers who arrived to assist. After taking Blessing into custody, officers saw her son sitting in the back seat. He was placed into protective custody by the Division of Child Services. Police say a stolen and loaded nine millimeter handgun was also found on the front passenger side floorboard. Further investigation by Lazoff and with the assistance of a Drug Recognition Expert from Angola Police determined that Blessing, who claimed to be 19 weeks pregnant, had been smoking meth hours before she was observed driving. Blessing was being held without bond pending an initial hearing.
