A local woman who led police on a pursuit through a store parking lot while putting other motorists and individuals in danger has been hit with four charges.

Heather D. Polson, 36, accelerated through the Rite-Aid parking lot and began driving through streets and maneuvering around other motorists after an officer attempted to initiate a traffic stop.

According to the warrant, on July 31, K-9 deputy Jared Jacobs attempted to pull over Polson after Jacobs witnessed her make an illegal right turn on a red light in front of a truck. 

Polson began driving through the Rite-Aid parking lot and turned onto several streets, passing a stopped vehicle at a stop sign along with moving motorists.

During the chase, Polson’s vehicle was disabled and turned into a residence on Spring Street where officers performed a felony stop and discovered a used syringe.

Polson appeared in court Tuesday morning for video arraignment for charges of possession of illegal drug paraphernalia, evading arrest, reckless endangerment with a vehicle, and driving while license revoked. The Public Defender’s Office was assigned to her case.

Polson has been in jail since her arrest. Her next court appearance is set for Sept. 10.
