An Oregon woman was busted for stealing from a Walmart store and then trying to flee in a motorized wheelchair.

Prelline Curtis, 48, was charged with second-degree theft after failing in her getaway attempt on March 24, 2015.

Authorities say the woman used the cart because of her bad health. Since she uses a motorized scooter as a means of transportation, a taxicab with a wheelchair lift was called to take the woman to jail. Officers had to follow the cab in their patrol cars to the Multnomah County Detention Center, where Curtis was booked into jail.
