A woman is facing charges in four towns after allegedly leading police on a chase following a theft at Wal-Mart.

Saturday, State Police tried to pull over the driver of a vehicle in in Kennedy that matched the description of one seen leaving Wal-Mart in Ellicott after a theft and the driver took off.

Troopers say they followed the driver, later identified as 37-year-old Tanya Boyd of Dunkirk, through three townships before she was stopped on Rt. 60 in Kiantone when she ran over stop sticks that deflated her tires.

Boyd, who police say had the stolen items in her vehicle, is charged with fifth degree criminal possession of stolen property, reckless driving, three counts of unlawfully fleeing a police officer in a motor vehicle and numerous traffic charges.

She was taken to the Chautauqua County Jail and is being held on a total of $7,000 bail between the four townships in which she is facing charges.
