Authorities learned that a relative of the vehicle owner was following a female, who was driving the alleged stolen vehicle which was traveling towards Carroll County.
The Carroll County Sheriff and Missouri State Highway Patrol were able to stop the stolen pickup in Carroll County near the Tina junction, at which time he female driver allegedly provided law enforcement officers with a specific name and identification.
The individual was subsequently arrested by Carroll County authorities for alleged driving while intoxicated and driving while revoked.
