MICHIGAN CITY, Ind. (AP) - A fugitive from Minnesota who taunted authorities on social media by vowing she'd "never be caught" has been arrested in northern Indiana.
  
Thirty-one-year-old Tiesha Monique Moore was taken into custody Monday in Michigan City by members of the Twin Cities Apprehension Team. She was wanted on 16 outstanding warrants, including felony theft and domestic assault, all from Minnesota.
In a profane Facbook post, Moore allegedly taunted local law enforcement and declared they could not catch up with her.
  
She's being held in Indiana awaiting extradition to Minnesota.
  
Stew Peters is the lead investigator for the Twin Cities Apprehension Team. He says multiple residences in Minnesota, North Dakota and Indiana were searched for Moore, who had taunted investigators on Facebook.
  
Michigan City Police Sgt. Chris Yagelski says a local informant helped in the arrest. Michigan City borders Lake Michigan and is about 50 miles east of Chicago.
