High speed pursuit of ORC suspects ends at Middle School in St. Paul Park, MN  Two women are in custody after leading police on a high-speed pursuit Tuesday that ended in the lobby of Oltman Middle School in St. Paul Park. Cottage Grove police Cpt. Pete Koerner said the suspects fled the Cottage Grove Target, after making off with over $2,000 worth of merchandise. The suspects, Koerner said, are part of a larger metro-wide operation that has targeted multiple Target stores recently. Just before 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, the Target LP reported a theft in progress. The two women were seen on surveillance pushing a cart containing unpaid merchandise to a Ford Escape. Koerner said it is known who the vehicle belongs to. Officers in the area attempted to initiate a traffic stop but the suspects got onto Highway 61. Koerner said the vehicle exited at 70th Street in St. Paul Park and ran multiple lights and stop signs before the pursuit was called off. Officers saturated the area in search of the two women and were then alerted by another Grey Cloud Island resident, who was notified of the suspects at one of the checkpoints, that two women matching the descriptions were in the lobby of the Middle School asking to use the phone. St. Paul Park and Cottage Grove police officers surrounded the school and took the women into custody without incident.

Six teens arrested, one sought for stealing $22,000 in Kohl's merchandise in Cedar Falls, Iowa  Police arrested six teenagers Tuesday and are looking for a seventh in connection with a series of thefts at a department store over the course of two weeks in December. Investigators say a 17-year-old cashier at Kohl's helped her friends take a total of $22,136.58 in merchandise without paying between December 3 and December 17, 2014. The employee would scan the items and then void the transaction, allowing her friends to leave the store with the merchandise and the voided receipts, according to a release from the Cedar Falls Police Department. Captain Jeff Harrenstein said the majority of the items taken were men's and women's apparel. He said authorities were not able to recover most of what was taken. "A very small percentage was turned in by the arrestees, but the majority, absolutely not," Harrenstein said. The store employee was arrested and charged with first-degree theft. Five others, ranging in age from 16 to 18, were also arrested and charged with second- or third-degree theft. One friend, 18-year-old Marqwane Smith, has a warrant for second-degree theft in connection with the case.
