      MANITOWOC, Wis. (AP) - A police officer who pulled over a driver for failing to pay at a gas station in Manitowoc made a bonus arrest.

      The officer spotted the drive-off suspect on an Interstate 43 ramp early Thursday.

      Lt. Craig Jansen says that after the officer pulled the driver over, the man consented to a vehicle search. When the officer opened the vehicle's trunk he found a 19-year-old woman fugitive inside. She had a warrant out for her arrest for things like theft and bail jumping. Police say she also violated probation and owed the city almost $6,000 in fines.

      Jansen says she apparently returned to Manitowoc to pick up her brother.
