Los Angeles area chase ends in arrest

Posted: Updated:

CASTAIC (CNS) - Two suspects who allegedly stole a vehicle in Arizona stole a state park police SUV in the Castaic area Monday while they were being arrested, then led authorities on a pursuit across surface streets and freeways in the Los Angeles area.

The chase began about 10:30 a.m. near Smokey Bear Road and Pyramid Lake Road, said CHP Officer Francisco Villalobos.

The chase went onto the southbound Golden State (5) Freeway, and was continuing more than a half hour later, with the white SUV being followed by officers in black-and-white cars. The suspects exited the 5 Freeway and while they were on a surface street, the driver flew through an intersection, sideswiping at least four vehicles.

According to the CHP, the suspects had been stopped by state park police and were in the process of being arrested. A female suspect had been handcuffed and placed in the SUV, but somehow the male suspect eluded the arresting officers and jumped into the police SUV and drove off, according to the CHP.
