Spartanburg County woman on the run, considered armed and dangerous

A Spartanburg County woman once accused of holding her ex-boyfriend at gunpoint in September is on the run from the law after authorities say she was involved in a failed kidnapping plot.

Authorities say Freda Lambert-Smith tried to kidnap the same man from a Boiling Springs apartment complex December 4th. She is considered armed and dangerous

The attempted kidnapping victim opened fire, wounding two men who were with Lambert-Smith who are now in the hospital recovering from gunshot wounds.

Investigators say Lambert-Smith got a U-haul and hired two men, telling them she needed their help with a move. When they got to the apartment complex, the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office says Lambert-Smith changed her story.

“She comes up with this prank story that she and her boyfriend prank each other all the time and she’s going to do a prank to pay him back for a previous prank,” said Lt. Kevin Bobo, public information officer with Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office.

Lt. Bobo says the attempted kidnapping victim got a tip from Lambert-Smith’s ex-husband, saying Lambert-Smith had stolen his gun. That why he armed himself, Bobo said.

Lambert-Smith was accused of holding the attempted kidnapping at gunpoint in her Greer home in September. She is currently out on a bond in that case.

Lambert-Smith was last seen travelling with a transient in a 2001 Jeep Wrangler. The vehicle has an Auburn University tag on the front and tag number 3389FV in the back. If you have any information on her whereabouts, call police.
