A call to check on the welfare of a woman sleeping inside a running car in downtown High River on Saturday, May 19th, evening turned into a high speed crash.

The vehicle was stolen, with a stolen licence plate and it contained stolen property.
Approximately one hour later, the female suspect was located and arrested in downtown High River following a brief foot chase.
