Accused Cheyenne Shoplifter Wanted in 90 MPH Police Chase
Police are searching for a 32-year-old Cheyenne woman who managed to elude them after a high-speed chase.
Officer Kevin Malatesta says police were called to the Walmart at 580 Livingston Avenue on Oct. 10 after Nichole Phillipp was spotted shoplifting.
"She ran to a car, got into the car as officers were approaching and backed up into another vehicle in the parking lot there, causing significant damage to that vehicle," said Malatesta.
"(She) then led the officers on a lengthy pursuit, I think it was about 15 minutes or so, but speeds of up to 90 mph, reckless driving all that kind of stuff before they canceled the pursuit," he added.
Phillipp is 5-foot-4, weighs 120 pounds and has brown hair and brown eyes. She was last seen driving a dark-blue 2007 Chevrolet Cobalt with damage to the back end.
"She's known to frequent Cheyenne and northern Colorado," said Malatesta.
Anyone with information on Phillipp's whereabouts is asked to call Crime Stoppers Silent Witness at (307) 638-TIPS. Callers will remain anonymous and may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000.
