LEWISTON — Police say the Lewiston woman who led police on a high-speed pursuit through several communities this week tried to torch her boyfriend's possessions with homemade Molotov cocktails.

Heather Kullson was charged Tuesday with arson, assault and eluding police after she was finally stopped following two chases that reached 80 miles per hour.

Police say they responded to a Lewiston home at about 6 p.m. after a report that the 21-year-old Kullson had tried to start a fire.

Police chased her, but called the pursuit off. Police say she returned to the scene and again tried to start a fire. Police chased her again, this time catching her in Poland.

The Sun Journal reports Kullson is being held at the Androscoggin County Jail on $25,000 cash bail.
