Driver of Stolen Dodge Leads Officers on Chase Across SoCal Freeways

A suspect driving a reported stolen car led authorities on a chase that began in the Carson area, continued to downtown Los Angeles, the San Gabriel Valley and Orange County, ending in Artesia.

The chase began on the northbound Harbor (110) Freeway near the San Diego (405) Freeway about 9:50 p.m., according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

The Dodge the suspect was driving was reported stolen, said LAPD Officer Mike Lopez.

The driver traveled through several cities on the eastbound Pomona (60) Freeway, before heading toward Orange County on the southbound Orange (57) Freeway, often times driving recklessly.

The driver traveled through Brea, Anaheim and Santa Ana before heading back to Los Angeles County on the westbound Artesia (91) Freeway.

The driver exited at Pioneer Boulevard in Artesia and drove in circles with authorities not far behind. A California Highway Patrol car used a Pursuit Intervention Technique maneuver about 10:30 p.m., to stop the suspect, who surrendered shortly after.
