Shoplifters lead police on wild chase, escape

A fairly routine shoplifting call – over a few bags of clothes – turned into much more Monday. A man and woman left the store, ditched a Cadillac, stole a utility truck and led 18 police cars on a crazy ride in the Duluth area. And then they slipped away. The two remained at large Monday night. All for what appears to be three bags of clothing.
