MANITOWOC, WI (WTAQ) - Manitowoc Police could not believe what they found early Thursday, when they stopped a driver for leaving a gas station without paying for $30 of fuel.

An officer found the car, searched it, and found a 19-year-old woman hiding in the trunk.  

Lieutenant Craig Jansen tells WOMT Radio that the woman was wanted for months -- and she was returning from Chicago to pick up her brother with plans to go right back.  

The officer discovered the wanted vehicle on an Interstate 43 ramp.  

The Herald-Times-Reporter identified the fugitive as Courtni Vice, who was listed as one of Manitowoc's "Most Wanted." Police said she owed $6,000 of municipal citations, and was wanted on a state probation-parole warrant and a bench warrant for skipping out on court appearances.  

She's now in jail awaiting a court appearance. The driver was cited for theft and obstructing an officer.
