WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A 27-year-old woman has been arrested after police say she stole items from a west Wichita Wal-Mart and led officers on a chase.

Wichita police Lt. Randy Reynolds says an officer pulled over a car for driving erratically and not using headlights around 11:20 p.m. Wednesday. The officer learned that the vehicle matched the description of one used by a shoplifter at an area Wal-Mart.

When the officer asked the woman to step out, she drove away. Reynolds says a short chase ensued before the woman turned into a cul-de-sac and crashed.

The Wichita Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/1QwPZnz ) that the officer found her 2-year-old daughter unrestrained in the back seat, along with evidence linking her to the shoplifting incident and drug paraphernalia.

The child is in the care of protective custody.
