A woman was arrested Monday after stealing an ambulance from St. Joseph’s Medical Center in Stockton, police say.

Officers said Natasha Scott, 34, led them on a 10-mile pursuit after failing to yield. The pursuit lasted 11 minutes, with speeds reaching over 90 mph, according to the Stockton Police Department’s Facebook page.

Once the pursuit reached those speeds, officers terminated the pursuit near northbound Interstate 5 for public safety reasons, but California Highway Patrol officers were able to locate and stop the vehicle near Bianchi Road and Townehome Drive, the Facebook post said.

Scott, a Stockton resident, was arrested and taken into custody on suspicion of stealing a vehicle, evading police and other traffic-related charges, police say
