A 34-year-old woman tossed stolen panties, bras and other shoplifted items out of her vehicle as she led cops on a high-speed chase in Indiana, according to authorities.
Holly Sansone shrugged and told officers, “I’ve gotta go” before taking off in her car on Wednesday night, according to the Times of Northwest Indiana newspaper.
Cops had confronted Sansone in the parking lot of a Kohl’s store. She had allegedly swiped four bras, 14 panties, two candles and air freshener refills with a total value of $445 from the department store, according to the newspaper.
During the pursuit, Sansone went through a red light and almost struck a police cruiser, according to authorities. She also almost collided with another vehicle head-on, according to the paper.
She reached a speed of nearly 100 miles per hour and she tossed stolen items out of her vehicle during the chase, according to the Times of Northwest Indiana.
When she was finally caught, Sansone at first resisted and then said she “didn’t have anything on her,” according to cops. Pairs of women’s underwear were found in the car, and panties and a bra were found on the side of the road.
Cops defended the high-speed chase, saying they were concerned about Sansone’s continuous bizarre behavior.
“There are more unknowns than knowns in something like that,” Portage Police Chief Troy Williams told the Times of Northwest Indiana. “I’m comfortable with the way they handled it.”
