Burglary Investigation Leads to West San Fernando Valley Chase

A driver surrendered Thursday morning after a brief pursuit on streets and freeways in the west San Fernando Valley.

The pursuit, involving a 2012 silver Honda Accord, was on the 118 Freeway in the Pacioma area. The driver then exited onto streets in the Laurel Canyon area.

After a patrol SUV followed the driver for a few blocks, the man pulled over and surrendered.

The pursuit began during an investigation into a burglary reported earlier in the Hollywood area. NBC4 is attempting to gather details about the burglary.

The chase was one of at least three in the Los Angeles area within hours, including one late Wednesday that ended in a violent standoff in Long Beach and a wild pursuit Thursday morning involving a stolen U-Haul box truck.
