Police say the driver, Janelle Delayo, and three passengers took turns shoplifting from the nearby Home Depot, then a Walgreens off of Eubank and Menaul. Delayo and one other passenger, Frankie Snyder, then allegedly shoplifted from a CVS. Police say Delayo activated a taser when confronted by employees.
Police later tried performing a traffic stop downtown and spike belted the vehicle as it fled. The vehicle containing the stolen items was found abandoned off of 2nd and Santa Fe and a helicopter helped lead officers to Delayo and Snyder, who were taken into custody.
It’s unclear if police are still looking for the two other passengers.
