Posted August 25
PITCAIRN, Pa. — Police say a Pittsburgh-area woman left her five children alone so she could drive her fugitive boyfriend across the state to avoid arrest.
Thirty-four-year-old Tiffany Jackson, of Pitcairn, is wanted on charges including child endangerment and hindering apprehension.
Pitcairn police say Jackson left her children behind when she drove her boyfriend to Philadelphia on Wednesday. Police say they range in age from 9 months to 16 years old.
Police say they had tried several times to find Jackson's boyfriend at her house. They say they have body camera video of her being told he's wanted by police on assault and other charges.
Online court records don't list an attorney for Jackson, who was not in custody Friday.
