DALLAS COUNTY (CBSDFW.COM) – A shoplifting call in Mesquite Wednesday afternoon turns into a high speed chase that ended on a dirt road in Southeast Dallas County.
Mesquite police say a woman, identified as Latoya Jackson, stole several pairs of khakis from the Old Navy near 635 at Town East Boulevard.
Jackson was able to lead police on the chase through Dallas in her Dodge Charger, speeding along I-30 until exiting near the Fair Park area. She then got on to Highway 175, leading police at over 100 miles per hour past Interstate 20 and exiting on Belt Line. The chase continued through the town of Wilmer. It eventually ended in far southeast Dallas County. Jackson jumped out of the Charger, but was tracked down by officers just outside a relative’s house.
After a foot chase, a mesquite police officer was able to stop Jackson, who was taken into custody after a brief struggle.
Relatives told KRLD’s L.P. Phillips they thought the police were a little rough with Jackson:
