PORTAGE, Ind. – It is not unusual for police officers to witness drugs and guns getting tossed from cars during a pursuit, but women’s undergarments are a bit more unique. Yet that is exactly what occurred during a high-speed chase on an Indiana highway last Wednesday. It featured a trail of stolen women’s panties and bras, according to police.
Holly Sansone, 34, was originally stopped on suspicion of shoplifting from a Kohl’s store in Portage when she shrugged and said, “I’ve gotta go,” before speeding away, the Post-Tribune reported.
While leading authorities on a chase with speeds reaching nearly 100 mph, the 34-year-old tossed items out of a window along the way, police said.
Those items included panties and bras that were taken from the store, according to a police report obtained by the news agency.

The chase eventually ended when Sansone’s car tires were shredded by spikes police laid across a roadway.
The 34-year-old was arrested on charges of resisting law enforcement, theft and reckless driving.
Altogether, police recovered four bras, 14 pairs of panties, two candles and some air freshener refills – altogether valued at $445, according to the Northwest Indiana Times.
