Police Chase Woman Through Vestal, Johnson City and Binghamton

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

A Hallstead, Pennsylvania woman is in custody after leading law enforcement officials on a chase through three municipalities in Broome County.

Broome County Sheriff’s Deputies began the pursuit of a 27 year old Sara Muskas at around 7:00 p.m. September 22 following a complaint about a shoplifter at the Vestal Walmart.

Broome County Sheriff’s Deputies say Muskas fled in a Subaru Forester and was involved in a minor crash on Route 434 and Rano Boulevard.

A short time after the alert was broadcast over police radio, Sergeant Sean Carnevale saw the vehicle on Floral Avenue in Johnson City and attempted to stop Muskas. The woman would not comply and continued through the City of Binghamton, hitting two more vehicles. Deputies say she drove onto Conklin Avenue and hit a fourth vehicle at the intersection of Home Avenue. At that point, she fled on foot.

Deputies apprehended Muskas a short distance away and say they found she was in possession of stolen cell phone equipment, ear phones Benadryl and other personal care items that had been taken from Walmart.

Muskas is charged with felony reckless endangerment, unlawful fleeing a police officer in a motor vehicle, obstructing government administration, felony possession of stolen property and resisting arrest.

She was sent to the Broome County Jail without bail.

Authorities say there were no injuries in any of the crashes.
