New Jersey authorities slapped a Philadelphia couple with multiple charges Wednesday for leading police on a high-speed pursuit with two stolen cruisers in two states.

For Blake Bills, 24, and Shayna Sykes, 23, Tuesday's pursuit marked the end of a crime spree that included several stolen vehicles as they attempted to buy heroin in Camden, N.J., reports

The spree began before the Macungie, Pa., couple stole a police cruiser in Camden Tuesday and led police on an interstate car chase into Pennsylvania. Bills and Sykes were attempting to steal a second civilian car, after the first one had broken down, when they spotted a Camden Police officer making a traffic stop.

Bills and Sykes sped off in the cruiser, taking it down I-676 before doubling back and heading over the Ben Franklin Bridge. Philadelphia Police stopped them in North Philadelphia. Sykes broke away from officers and jumped behind the wheel of a Philadelphia PD cruiser, leading officers through the city's narrow streets before she was taken into custody.

Bills is charged with attempted murder, carjacking, eluding, aggravated assault, and assault by auto. Sykes is charged with conspiracy to commit theft of a car and joyriding. They also face charges in Philadelphia.

How would having drones helped in this case?
To have the chance to jump into a 2nd cruiser "that is on the officers"

So I'm assuming the charges listed are just for what they are facing in NJ. From what I saw on the video of the female driving the Philly squad car (after the male was already in custody) she struck a pedestrian and several vehicles. Please tell me she is going to face similar charges in PA to what the male is facing in NJ, i.e. attempted murder, eluding, assault by auto. No leniency just because she's got a nice rack!

Dustin I agree with your comment.

I know why her charges are minimal. Did you check out her boobs! I wouldn't have charged her either.
