ANCHORAGE -

Numerous charges are pending against a Kodiak woman, after a Wednesday pursuit during which Alaska State Troopers say she nearly struck three law enforcement officers with a stolen pickup truck.

According to a Thursday AST dispatch, the list of offenses includes three counts of third-degree assault as well as one count each of first-degree vehicle theft, first-degree failure to stop at the direction of a peace officer, third-degree criminal mischief, reckless endangerment and reckless driving. The woman hasn’t been identified because she hasn’t yet been formally charged.

Troopers say the incident began just before 8:45 a.m. Wednesday when 33-year-old Curtis Howell reported his 2007 Nissan Titan pickup stolen to the Kodiak Police Department. In an email to Channel 2, AST spokesperson Megan Peters says “(the) suspect was an unknown person to (the) victim and his family.”

“Howell advised he had just dropped off his two children at the Kodiak Baptist Mission Day Care on Rezanof Drive and while doing so, he observed a ‘blond haired female’ entering his vehicle,” troopers wrote in the dispatch. “The unknown female locked the doors to prevent Howell from entering the vehicle and she drove away without his permission.”

Both Alaska State Troopers and Alaska Wildlife Troopers responded alongside KPD officers, catching up with the Titan on Mission Road. During the pursuit, Peters says the woman racked up the assault charges for “almost hitting two troopers and one KPD officer with the stolen vehicle.”

“The pursuit lasted for approximately 19 minutes and spike strips were eventually deployed by AST and AWT troopers, which were successful in flattening the tires,” troopers wrote. “The driver of the vehicle, later identified as a 29-year-old female of Kodiak, was taken into custody after she was extricated from the vehicle after she refused to open the doors.”

Peters says troopers removed the woman from the Titan “by force after breaking out the driver’s-side window.” She was taken to Providence Kodiak Island Medical Center, for treatment of injuries unrelated to the use of the spike strips or her arrest.

“(The) truck did not crash,” Peters wrote. “It came to a controlled stop about 1 mile down the road.”

Peters says the truck sustained a total of about $2,000 in damage during the pursuit, including the broken window and burst tires as well as labor and insurance deductible costs.
