A woman who is a most wanted fugitive in Minnesota was arrested Monday in Michigan City.

Tiesha Monique Moore is in custody following a five-month manhunt that spanned three states.

Police say Moore had a total of 16 outstanding warrants at the time of her arrest. She was wanted for felony first-degree criminal damage to property, felony domestic assault, felony theft, felony aiding and abetting financial transaction card fraud, felony wrongfully obtaining assistance by false statement, impersonation or concealment, felony DWI, and several gross misdemeanor criminal charges.

Moore taunted investigators throughout the manhunt on social media by commenting on Facebook about how she would “never be caught”.

Police say several homes in Minnesota, North Dakota, and Indiana were searched before investigators ultimately ended Moore's run.

She was arrested in a Michigan City parking lot around 5:10 p.m. Monday.

The Michigan City Police Department says the arrest came, in part, thanks to multiple anonymous tips.
