SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -

A wanted woman was taken into custody after Spartanburg police scanned her car with an automated license plate reader on Saturday.

According to the incident report, an officer was using his automated plate reader near Norris Street in Spartanburg when it indicated a 2010 Nissan Altima was associated with a wanted person out of Shelby, NC, according to the incident report.

Several officers responded to the scene and tried to locate the wanted 18-year-old Wykeisha Wood, according to the report. 

At 10 p.m. a woman matching Wood's description exited an apartment and got into the Altima, the report said.

Police then blocked the car in and took Wood into custody, according to the report.

Spartanburg police said Wood had outstanding warrants for two counts of armed robbery, first-degree burglary, second-degree kidnapping and discharging a firearm into a dwelling.

Wood was taken to Spartanburg County Detention Center.
