MERRIMACK - A Massachusetts woman was jailed over the weekend pending a Monday arraignment after police took her into custody Saturday after she allegedly tried to drive away from a traffic stop.

Jemimah F. Ndungi, 29, of 333 1st St., Apt. 106 in Lowell, Mass., was ultimately charged with one count each of operating after revocation, subsequent offense; disobeying a police officer; and open container violation, police said.

An officer on patrol stopped the car Ndungi was driving around 6 p.m. Saturday on the Exit 12 southbound onramp to the Everett Turnpike for what police described as a minor motor vehicle infraction.

The driver, later identified as Ndungi, allegedly told the officer that she had no identification with her, but then provided what the officer determined was conflicting information.

It was at that point that Ndungi allegedly tried to drive off, but the officer was able to prevent her from getting away, police said.

He subsequently took Ndungi into custody, and in checking her record found that her license had been revoked. She was charged accordingly, then taken to Valley Street jail in lieu of $500 cash bail pending arraignment, police said.
