Fraud Suspect Tied to 90 Mile High Speed Chase Charged
PORTAGE, Mich (April 16, 2014) – A woman who’s accused of trying to use fraudulent credit cards at a Target store in Portage on Tuesday has been arraigned.
Bonnesha Cole, 24, of Chicago is being held on $25,000 bond on two charges tied to the crime.
Investigators in Portage say Cole is associated with the 23-year-old Illinois man who led multiple police agencies on a nearly one hour chase that spanned more than 90 miles on Tuesday.
The male suspect hasn’t been identified yet. He was arrested after crashing his vehicle along an I-94 exit ramp near the Indiana State line Tuesday afternoon. Michigan State Police say he dragged a Portage officer near the Target store that tried to stop him and almost hit another officer that attempted to deploy stop sticks along the highway during the chase.
Nobody was hurt in the incident according to Michigan State Police.
