A 38-year-old woman reportedly stole a Kent Police SUV near Kentridge High School and sped away before she was taken into custody near Highway 18 and Interstate 90.

The vehicle had damage to the right front, but all of the equipment inside the vehicle was secure and accounted for, police said.

Nobody was injured during the pursuit.
