(Spencer)-- An Iowa City woman faces multiple charges following a high speed pursuit this past weekend that started in Spencer and resulted in the suspect being taken into custody in Milford.

The Spencer Police Department says it started shortly after midnight Friday when an officer attempted to pull over a vehicle in the 400 block of West 4th Street for a traffic violation. The driver failed to stop, leading police on a pursuit reaching speeds as high as 90 mph at times. The vehicle left the roadway at the intersection of West 4th Street and 355th Street, traveling through a corn field. The vehicle eluded officers.

Milford police made contact with the same vehicle around 1:00 am in the 1000 block of ā€œNā€ Avenue in Milford. The driver again evaded police by driving around a barricade at a construction zone. Officers found the vehicle a short time later next to some apartments at 1209 6th Street in Milford, and determined it had been stolen out of Okoboji.

Upon further investigation the suspect driver, 32-year-old Shana Mull of Iowa City, was then located and placed under arrest. Mull was booked into the Dickinson county jail on charges of eluding, failure to obey a stop sign, speeding, driving left of center, failure to have a valid driver's license, failure to yield to an emergency vehicle and criminal mischief.
