ANCHORAGE, (KTUU) - A 26-year-old woman is in jail, accused of a list of crimes, including stealing a vehicle and having multiple stolen credit cards, checks, and IDs belonging to other people.

Anchorage Police say an officer tried to pull over Ta'Lora Thompson in the area of C Street and West Fireweed Lane on Saturday, June 15.

Running a computer check, the officer learned the black Lincoln SUV Thompson was driving had been reported stolen.

APD says the officer tried to pull over Thompson, but she refused, resulting in officers using their vehicles to bring the SUV to a stop.

APD says Thompson tried to ram the patrol cars in a move to escape.

Eventually, officers were able to get cuffs on Thompson, who was arrested and interviewed by APD Detectives.

After speaking with her, detectives learned she had a handgun that she didn't tell the officers about, and multiple stolen credit cards, checks, and IDs belonging to multiple people, and multiple sets of keys for different vehicles.

Thompson is being held in the Anchorage Jail on multiple charges including Vehicle Theft I, three counts of Theft II, Misconduct Involving Weapons IV, and Resisting Arrest.
