(ABC 6 News) -- A car was found abandoned in Rochester Thursday after the driver led Wabasha County deputies on a pursuit through the region.

According to the Wabasha County Sheriff's Office, the female driver stole $30 worth of gasoline and lead deputies on a high-speed chase.

According to Olmsted County Sheriff’s Captain Scott Behrns, Olmsted County received word of a pursuit that started in Wabasha County on August 10, and was entering Olmsted County limits around 3:11 p.m.

Deputies described the suspect as a smaller female who was wearing a hoodie.  She was driving a black Ford Fusion, said Capt. Behrns, which had heavy frontal damage and a dealer license plate.

Wabasha County deputies decided to back off the pursuit when the suspect reached Highway 63 and 75th St., because traffic in the area had increased and the safety of others on the road became a concern.

Olmsted County deputies found the suspect’s vehicle abandoned at a dead end on 55th St. and Portland Court NW in Rochester.   The vehicle had been reported stolen from Rochester between July 31 and August 3, according to Captain Behrns.  A K9 officer was brought to the scene but was unable to locate the suspect.

ABC 6 News is waiting to hear back from the Wabasha County Sheriff’s Office for more details on how the pursuit began.  Be sure to stay with ABC 6 News on-air and online for the latest on this developing story.
