Kierra Fillmore

A habitual traffic offender was arrested late Thursday night after it was determined that the license plate on her car belonged to another vehicle.

A Marion County sheriff’s deputy stopped 28-year-old Kierra Fillmore in the 1100 block of Hwy. 484 after discovering that the license tag on her light blue Pontiac four-door sedan actually was assigned to a Cadillac SUV. Fillmore told the deputy that the Pontiac belonged to her sister and that she didn’t have her driver’s license with her, a sheriff’s office report states.

A computer check revealed that Fillmore’s license had been suspended on Sept. 5, 2018 and she was listed as a habitual offender. And it also was determined that her vehicle wasn’t registered, the report says.

Fillmore was taken into custody and transported to the Marion County Jail, where she was charged with driving while license suspended (habitual offender) and failing to register a motor vehicle. She also was held on prior charges connected with driving with a suspended or revoked license with no bond set for her release.

Fillmore, who has been held in the jail three times since May 2012, is scheduled to appear in court on Jan. 16, Feb. 1 and Feb. 5 to answer to the four charges filed against her.
