EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - A woman wanted on identity theft charges has been arrested in Oregon after a construction worker lifted the lid of a portable toilet to find her hiding inside.

The Register-Guard reports (http://goo.gl/ZuT2dO ) that 27-year-old Treasure Dawn Shockey, who had two warrants for her arrest, ran when police in Eugene tried to talk to her Saturday morning.

Police say a witness told them she saw the woman run through her yard and climb a fence onto the property of the Eugene Swim and Tennis Club.

About 20 minutes later, a construction worker told police he had lifted the lid of a port-a-potty and been surprised to see her inside.

Police say Shockey left the toilet and they arrested her.
