Woman arrested after eluding Spencer, Milford police in vehicle chase

An Iowa City woman faces multiple charges after leading Spencer and Milford police on a chase in a stolen vehicle shortly after midnight Friday.

The Spencer Police Department stated Shana Mull, 32, was eventually arrested and charged with eluding, a class D felony; failure to obey a stop sign, speeding, driving left of center, no valid driver’s license, failure to yield to an emergency vehicle and criminal mischief.

Sometime just after midnight, Spencer police tried to stop the vehicle Mull was driving in the 400 block of West Fourth Street for a moving violation, according to a news release from Spencer police.

The vehicle did not stop and led Spencer police on a short chase that reached speeds over 90 mph.

The vehicle left the road at the West Fourth Street and 355th Street intersection and drove through a corn field.

Spencer police were not able to stop the vehicle, which eventually eluded officers.

However, at about 1 a.m., Milford police encountered the vehicle in the 1000 block of N Avenue in Milford.

The vehicle drove through a barricaded road construction zone and again escaped.

Police later found the vehicle unoccupied next to SouthView apartments, 1209 Sixth Street in Milford. That’s when police determined the vehicle had been stolen out of Okoboji.

Further investigation led to Mull’s arrest and charges, according to police.

Mull was being held in the Dickinson County Jail as of Monday morning.
