Grant County Sheriff's Deputies arrested an 18-year-old Moses Lake woman early this morning after she allegedly stole a car and led officers on a short chase.
Brittany Strong was arrested by deputies in the Larson neighborhood. She was driving a Chrysler 300 which had been reported stolen from a nearby home about 15 minutes before Sheriff Tom Jones spotted it and gave chase around 6:30 am.
During the chase Strong struck a curb, flattening the right front tire of the vehicle. A short time later Strong lost control and crashed into a fire hydrant at Mather Drive and Larson Boulevard.
Strong was arrested shortly thereafter and booked into the Grant County Jail on charges of theft of a motor vehicle, possession of a stolen vehicle and felony eluding police.
