ORONOCO — Olmsted County Sheriff's deputies arrested a woman who hid herself in the trunk of a car after she allegedly broke into an Oronoco home and tussled with one of the homeowners.
Kirsten Hart, 29, of rural Byron, will likely face a charge of second-degree burglary.
The homeowners alerted police of a woman running out of the back of their residence as they were returning home. The couple pursued the woman with a woman on a golf cart and vehicle.
The two women scuffled before a man believed to be unrelated to the incident drove through, stopped, inquired if there was anything wrong and picked up Hart, believing she was in distress.
Police later located the vehicle and the man told authorities Hart put herself in the trunk.
Hart is alleged to have stolen several pill bottles containing Oxycodone and Ambien as well as $150 and a fake million dollar bill.
Oronoco is about 12 miles north of Rochester.
