High-speed chase follows alleged California shoe theft

The Associated Press

SAN DIEGO- Two women stole several pairs of handmade Italian shoes from a boutique and led police on a high-speed chase in which they tossed the spiky-heeled footwear at pursuing officers, authorities said.

A clerk from Rangoni Shoes in the upscale La Jolla neighborhood reported the theft of $700 (euro550) worth of shoes Sunday afternoon, said San Diego police Sgt. Bob Dare.

The two suspects fled after police arrived, reaching speeds of up to 100 mph (160 kph) on interstate highways and sideswiping several cars, according to the California Highway Patrol. Officers stopped them in a San Diego suburb by ramming their car.

The women, ages 31 and 35, were arrested for investigation of theft and evading arrest, police said.
