Stolen meat among shoplifted items found after car chase

JACKSON, Mich. (AP/WLNS) – Stolen meat and other shoplifted items valued at about $1,000 have been recovered after police say a 70-year-old southern Michigan woman led police them on a car chase through several communities.

Our media partners at the Jackson Citizen Patriot say Wednesday that Jackson County deputies spotted the woman’s 1989 BMW Tuesday night while responding to a retail fraud report at the Airport Road Meijer.

Deputies chased the BMW at speeds above the posted limits. Stop sticks placed onto the roadway in front of the vehicle were used to deflate the BMW’s tires.

Undersheriff Christopher Kuhl said a “large quantity of stolen meat,” various electronics and a vacuum cleaner were in the trunk.

Kuhl said investigators believe the meat was stolen over a few days from multiple grocery stores.

The Jackson woman was being held in the county jail.
