TULSA - Five women suspected of shoplifting lead police on a high speed-chase that started in Broken Arrow and ended in Tulsa.
Employees at a Ross Dress For Less near 101st Street and Elm Place told police that five women had stolen $1,500 worth of merchandise around 10 p.m. Monday.
Officers spotted the suspects' silver car about three miles away, but the suspects refused to stop for police, leading to a high-speed chase that ended at 71st Street and Mingo Road in Tulsa.
Police say they found stolen merchandise from the Broken Arrow store and from Woodland Hills Mall.
All women were arrested. Ceonna Brown, 21, Marie McCullum, 30 and Tries Boy, 36, are all facing a grand larceny charge.
Shahara Barnes, 29, and 22-year-old Juliet Harding are facing grand larceny charges and attempting to elude police. Police say Barnes was the original driver during the pursuit, but she switched places with Harding while the pursuit was in progress.
Tulsa police are seeking to charge the suspects for the earlier Woodland Hills Mall incidents.
