LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Four people involved in a burglary and two carjackings were arrested after leading authorities on a dangerous high-speed chase through Orange and Los Angeles counties Friday night.
The suspects were apprehended in South L.A. just before 9 p.m. despite their desperate attempt to evade capture. During the pursuit, they sped dangerously on freeways and streets, weaved past other drivers and even hopped into a different car to continue fleeing.
The chase began after the owners of a Buena Park home stopped the suspects from burglarizing their property and reported the incident just before 7:20 p.m., police said.
After the suspects failed to drive off in the homeowners' vehicle, they carjacked a Lyft driver, police said.
Buena Park police asked Anaheim police for help when the suspects continued fleeing. Eventually, the chase entered L.A. County.
AIR7 HD was over the chase around 8:10 p.m. as the fleeing car was going over 100 mph on the freeway. Prior to that, authorities say one of the suspects carjacked another person after exiting the 105 Freeway.
Authorities were chasing a black Audi, but the suspects switched cars and got into a black Mercedes-Benz after they hid under a freeway bridge. It's unclear if the Mercedes was carjacked or if the car was waiting for them there.
The Mercedes came to a sudden stop near Ivy Street and Firestone Boulevard. Four people ran out of the car and they were all taken into custody after a brief foot chase.
The chase went through multiple freeways (the 105 and 110) and different parts of L.A., including Hawthorne, Compton and Harbor Gateway.
