A woman who was arrested Saturday morning after driving a sport-utility vehicle through the Sacramento County Main Jail lobby was identified as Latasha Marie Dora, 32, of Rancho Cordova, the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department reported.
Dora is being held at the jail for felony counts of vandalism and destruction of a jail facility with bail set at $10,000, according to a Sheriff’s Department news release. Sacramento County sheriff’s deputies said a motive for the incident was still unclear late Saturday afternoon.
The crash, which happened at around 5:30 a.m. on I Street between Sixth and Seventh streets, is the second of its kind in the past month.
In February, 54-year-old Craig Joseph Dumas was arrested on suspicion of felony vandalism after deputies said he drove into the Sacramento County Main Jail through a roll-up prisoner delivery door early in the morning. He was arrested on the vandalism charge and for violation of probation. The Sacramento Police Department also arrested him on suspicion of false reporting of a bomb.

Dora was immediately detained on Saturday by deputies without incident, with no injuries being reported from the crash. She told deputies she had struck other buildings in the downtown area, but no other damage was found, according to the Sheriff’s Department.
An initial news release by the Sheriff’s Department stated Dora was being evaluated for driving under the influence. Sgt. Tony Turnbull said in a text message Saturday afternoon that there was no indication of driving under the influence in her evaluation.
Visitation at the jail has been canceled until further notice. Information about visitation can be found at www.sacsheriff.com.
