A woman on parole for drug trafficking was stopped after a 100 mph pursuit that started in downtown Minden and ended up above Bodie Flat in the Pine Nuts on Sunday morning.

Tricia Ann-Marie Turria, 30, was arrested after she fled from a traffic stop on Esmeralda Avenue in Minden.

According to the probable cause document, Turria gave a false name and date of birth to a deputy when questioned. A third woman in the back seat hopped out while the deputy was running a check and the two women in the Toyota sped off.

Turria was allegedly driving 70 mph and shifting into the northbound lanes of the Highway through Gardnerville forcing oncoming motorists out of the way.

By the time the chase reached Stodick Avenue, deputies reported the Toyota was traveling at 100 mph. Turria allegedly turned onto Courtland in Bodie Flat and slowed to 30 mph. A deputy tried to bump her off the road, but she was able to get to the ridge before stopping and running off into the sage brush, according to the document.

Turria has two warrants from parole and probation for retake into prison and violations on her parole from a 3-10-year prison sentence for a 2018 drug trafficking in Douglas County. She and another man were arrested for allegedly bringing a half-pound of methamphetamine to the county in 2016.

The second woman in the vehicle, Nicole Angel Rimer, 43, was found lying on the back seat after deputies returned to the vehicle. After they were in custody, deputies learned that someone in the vehicle allegedly used it to call 911 to report an armed man in Sharkey’s.

Rimer was paroled on a 1-4-year prison sentence for burglary out of Washoe County.

Rimer is facing two warrants in Washoe County, along with gross misdemeanors for misuse of 911, and conspiracy.

They are both scheduled to appear in East Fork Justice Court on Tuesday morning.
