PORTAGE, In. (AP) – Panties, bras and other shoplifted items were tossed from a car being chased by police at speeds nearly reaching 100 mph in northwestern Indiana.
The (Northwest Indiana) Times reports that the driver, 34-year-old Holly Sansone, almost struck other vehicles Wednesday evening before her car tires were shredded by spikes laid across a roadway by police.
Four bras, 14 pairs of panties, two candles and some air freshener refills — all valued at about $445 — are believed to have been stolen from a Kohl’s in Portage, east of Gary.
The chase started when officers investigating the shoplifting approached the woman about 6:30 p.m. She was arrested when her car was stopped in Chesterton.
The woman faces fleeing and resisting law enforcement, theft and reckless driving charges.
