Deputies from the Pettis County Sheriff's Office, Missouri State Highway Patrol Troopers, and officers from the Sedalia Police Department were involved in a "lengthy pursuit" of a stolen vehicle through Sedalia and Pettis County on December 16.

Authorities took a report of a black 2017 Dodge Challenger being stolen from the 700 block of E. 9th Street around 10:15 a.m. The vehicle was located later in the day and a traffic stop was initiated by a Sedalia officer. The vehicle then reportedly fled and was finally stopped on S. 65 Highway south of Claycomb Rd.

35-year-old Kristi A. Wiser was taken into custody on charges of stealing a motor vehicle, stealing from a building, and two active Pettis County warrants.
