WAITE PARK -- Authorities solved a string of shoplifting cases in the St. Cloud area with the arrest of a Spicer woman.

Waite Park Police were called to Kohl's on a shoplifting complaint Tuesday afternoon. The woman was seen leaving in a red Pontiac Grand Prix.

A short time later, a Stearns County Sheriff's Deputy spotted the car and tried to make a traffic stop. The driver took off, reaching speeds of 100 miles an hour before finally stopping on Stearns County Road 6 in St. Joseph Township.
