NOWATA COUNTY, Okla. — A woman wanted for identity theft and shoplifting in Texas was arrested after she was chased by authorities in Nowata County, according to the Nowata County Sheriff's Office (NCSO), according to NCSO.

NCSO said on March 9, an SCPD officer stopped a vehicle for showing the wrong license plate.

The driver of that vehicle, later identified as Jennifer Morris, initially gave that officer a fake name and a fake driver's license. While the officer was checking this information, Morris drove away.

The officer then chased Morris south on Highway 169 while she drove up to 120 mph.

NCSO said Morris passed other vehicles on the left, forcing them from the roadway, and on the right using a highway ditch.

Near Highway 169 and County Road 16, a NCSO deputy punctured a tire on Morris' vehicle using stop sticks.

Morris was arrested from her vehicle when she stopped.

NCSO said the vehicle was stolen from Arlington, Texas.

They also said items shoplifted from stores in Olathe, Kansas, along with stolen ID cards, were found in the vehicle.

According to NCSO, Morris said she shoplifts from stores and steals wallets and purses to get information to steal identities.

NCSO said Morris was recently released from a Texas prison for credit card theft.

Morris is wanted in several counties in the Dallas, Texas, area for identity theft and shoplifting. She also wanted parole violations.

Morris was arrested for eluding while endangering others, false personation, possession of stolen vehicle, knowingly concealing stolen property and bringing stolen property into the Cherokee Nation. Her bond was set at $25,000 by a Cherokee Nation Judge.
