On the night of March 16, Pearland police received a report of a theft in progress in which they say two female suspects in a white Dodge Durango had stolen eight cases of beer and fled northbound on Cullen. Police say an officer located the Durango on Cullen Parkway near Hughes Ranch Road, but the suspects refused to pull over and instead fled northbound at a high rate of speed.
Pearland police say the suspects continued north on Cullen, east on the Feeder road of the Sam Houston TollWay, and north on Wayside when the vehicle failed to negotiate the T-intersection at 13000 Wayside and 5900 Almeda Genoa and side-swiped a utility pole, went through a fence and struck materials at a business in the 5800 block of Almeda Genoa.
An officer attempting to locate the suspect the vehicle also wrecked into a ditch in the same area, police say.
Katina Barley and Crystal Scott were taken into custody at the scene. Scott, 43, was charged with evading arrest in a vehicle, reckless driving, theft-shoplifting and driving while license invalid. Barley, 35, was charged with theft-shoplifting.
