About 30 minutes later, a trooper located the female who had been driving the pickup as she was walking away from the area. The trooper located a firearm in the subject’s waistband.
The female, an 18-year-old juvenile from South Dakota, was arrested for driving a stolen vehicle, theft, carrying a concealed weapon, and no operator’s license. She was lodged in Thurston County Jail.
The other incident occurred in Omaha and the vehicle was recovered.
