Pursuit on Halloween involved stolen car out of KCK

The Platte County Sheriff’s Office engaged in a Halloween night car chase, eventually taking into custody a woman who had stolen the car and other belongings of a Kansas City, Kan. woman who made the mistake of taking her in for the night.

Tori M. Robinson, 22, of Kansas City, Kan. fled from officers in a 2004 Buick Rendezvous after she was clocked going 79 miles per hour in a 55 mph zone on Interstate 29 near NW Waukomis Road.

According to court documents, Robinson continued traveling northbound, reaching speeds of 90 miles per hour before exiting at NW 64th Street before going south on Roanridge Road, again reaching 90 miles per hour this time in a 35 mph zone.

At Roanridge’s dead end, Robinson stopped the vehicle and fled on foot into the wood line. She eventually obeyed officers commands to come out, and they took her into custody.

A search of the vehicle revealed purses belonging to the registered owner of the vehicle and another woman. Officers also recovered a loaded .380 Ruger handgun in the purse of the car owner, who was also the registered owner of the firearm.

Almost 100 grams of marijuana was found in three different spots along with other various items later claimed to be the property of the car owner.

Kansas City (Kan.) Police officers contacted the alleged victim, and she stated that she had taken Robinson in for the night. While the victim slept, Robinson took the vehicle and several items from the residence, including the gun, two purses and three cell phones.

Robinson remains in custody at the Platte County Detention Center in lieu of a $10,000 cash-only bond, charged with felony counts of tampering with a motor vehicle, unlawful use of a firearm and resisting a lawful stop by fleeing.
