Minnesota Woman Arrested After Motor Vehicle Chase in North Iowa

A Minnesota woman is in custody after leading law enforcement on a vehicle chase in North Iowa Monday.

The Worth County Sheriff’s Office arrested 37-year-old Jannifer Miller of Owatonna for eluding a law enforcement vehicle after a deputy tried to pull her over in Northwood. Miller instead sped away and during the pursuit throughout the town, court records show Miller reached speeds of 60 miles per hour in 25 mile per hour zones. At one point she also drove through a residential yard.

Authorities say Miller was finally stopped and she and a male passenger were arrested at gunpoint. Court documents state Miller drove through at least six stop signs while trying to evade law enforcement.

Miller was on the sheriff’s department “radar” after deputies originally encountered Miller while serving a search warrant on May 13th which revealed she did not have a valid driver’s license. She was spotted Monday driving someone else’s car in the 1400 block of First Avenue in Northwood. When deputies attempted to pull her over, the chase began.
