Riverside Police arrested a parolee suspected of stealing an SUV Tuesday at the end of a pursuit.

An SUV was reported stolen in Moreno Valley. Riverside County Sheriff's deputies located the vehicle and began pursuing it.

The SUV drove into the city of Riverside, at which point Riverside Police officers took over the chase.

The SUV tried to evade pursuing officers on side streets. A spike strip was deployed, taking out one tire on the right side of the vehicle. That eventually brought the vehicle to a stop.

Police units lined up behind the vehicle and a K-9 dog was prepared. After a short pause, the driver surrendered to police. Two passengers were also in the vehicle. The driver was arrested and the passengers were detained.

The incident was under investigation.
