(KUTV) The woman involved in the theft of a police cruiser while still in handcuffs is now behind bars.

Note: A previous version of this story stated Quintana stole the police vehicle. However, her associate Caresa Chacon was responsible for the vehicle theft.

Ashley Quintana was on the run for almost a week before police caught up with her.

Back on December 19, Quintana and another woman were being chased by police.

Quintana was arrested and put in a patrol car. Chacon was able to climb into the driver's seat while in handcuffs and steal the police cruiser.
