An Eskridge woman has entered a plea in Pottawatomie county court in a case KMAN has been following since last summer.
 
Stephanie Rush, 29, pled no contest to felony fleeing and eluding in connection with a case that began at Wal-Mart in Manhattan in July of last year. Law enforcement authorities at the time indicated Rush took possession of several items from the jewelry and make-up counters at Wal-Mart and got into a vehicle.
 
Police followed the vehicle and attempted a traffic stop when Rush fled to HIghway 24 near St. George and entered Highway 177, driving south to I-70. Her vehicle eventually came to a stop in Wabaunsee County and Rush was arrested.
 
Her sentencing is set for April 24th.
