Officers at The Redding Police Department in northern California are in the process of solving a cartoon-grade mystery. A local woman, Sharon Kay Turman, fled from police after violating her probation. She was able to dodge the advances of the department in a not-so-stealthy vehicle: a Chrysler Town & County minivan painted identically like the Mystery Machine famous for solving crimes in Scooby-Doo.

Turman, age 51, evaded the Redding authorities but was spotted later by a California Highway Patrol helicopter. Perhaps fueled by Scooby Snacks, she continued to baffle authorities with speeds over 100 MPH and a “blatant disregard for motorist safety” that caused her to almost cause a four-car collision.
Unfortunately for northern California, Turman seems even more full of mysteries than the machine she drives.
From Good Morning America:
Turman was later “spotted by the helicopter abandoning the vehicle in an area of northwestern Tehama County,” police said. Though her vehicle was “located and impounded,” Turman’s “current whereabouts are unknown.
