Moline Police: Shoplifter rams squad car, gets away

Police say a woman rammed a squad car and got away from Moline Police who were trying to arrest her and several others for shoplifting.

At SouthPark Mall, officers arrested three juvenile girls on Tuesday, March 18, 2014, who were suspected of working with adults to steal thousands of dollars worth of clothes from Illinois and Iowa stores, according to Detective Scott Williams from the Moline Police.

Williams said Jalissa Shantil March, 25, was driving when she rammed a squad car and knocked a policeman down with her car door before leaving the scene.

The officer was not hurt.

Williams said they were still searching for March, who had a warrant out for her arrest in Rock Island County for an unrelated retail theft.
