New charges have been filed against the Rochester woman who led police on a three-county high speed chase last Thursday.
The Oswego County Sheriff’s Department alleges that Javonnia Rouse, 30, of Rochester, stole from the Oswego Wal-Mart before stealing items from the Super Wal-mart in Granby on July 1. The department alleges that Rouse stole more than $2,000 worth of items from the Oswego Wal-Mart. She was taken from jail, where she’s been since she was arrested that night, to court, where Judge Michael Shanley set bail for her on the new felony grand larceny charge of $25,000 cash or $50,000 bond.
Meantime, Fulton Police say they’ve charged Rouse with reckless driving, failure to comply and other traffic-related counts.
Rouse, police allege, fled the Granby Super Wal-Mart as police came to investigate a reported theft from the store. An officer spotted Rouse’s vehicle, allegedly driving recklessly, and tried to pull her over. Instead, Rouse and passenger Shytrece Banks sped off.
They led police through three counties, in a chase that hit speeds up to 90 miles an hour. The chase ended in Red Creek, Wayne County. Police say they found items stolen from the store in Rouse’s Ford Explorer.
At the time, both women were held on felony grand larceny charges. Police say both women remain in the Oswego County jail. Rouse’s bail was set at $2,500, while Banks was jailed without bail.
More charges are possible. Fulton Police say they and the Oswego County Sheriff’s Department continue their investigation.
