KODIAK, Alaska (AP) - A woman led Kodiak law enforcement officers on an extended chase after jumping into a man’s idling truck and driving off.

The Kodiak Daily Mirror (https://bit.ly/1pgQTsj) reports 33-year-old Curtis Howell on Wednesday dropped off his daughters at Kodiak Baptist Mission Day Care and left his pickup running.

He says he walked the girls 25 feet into the building in and was signing them in when a blond woman got into his truck, locked the doors and took off.

Howell called 911.

Alaska State Troopers and Kodiak police spotted the truck and pursued it for 19 minutes, eventually flattening its tires with spikes. Officers had to break windows to remove the woman.

Troopers say they anticipate the 29-year-old woman will be charged with vehicle theft, failure to stop and reckless driving.
