BEAVERTON, OR (KPTV) -

Police said a woman wanted for running away from a stolen car after a traffic stop was caught hiding under blankets in a Beaverton home.

Beaverton police asked for help tracking down Lily Santulli last week. Investigators said she was involved in a traffic stop June 19 near Northwest 173rd Place and Cornell Road.

Officers said Santulli was driving a stolen car, and ran away from the scene.

Two other people in the car were arrested, one on a warrant and the other for possession of drugs.

Police said Santulli had two outstanding warrants out of Deschutes County and is considered a suspect in a series of burglaries at local hotels and motels.

An anonymous tip led Beaverton police to a home on Southwest 206th Place at 11:40 a.m. Wednesday. Detectives said Santulli was found hiding under blankets in a bedroom.

She was arrested and booked in the Washington County Jail for her two outstanding felony warrants. Police said she will also face new charges of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, possession of a stolen vehicle and ID theft.
