Ventura County chase suspects arrested after hiding in orchard

SANTA PAULA, Calif. (KABC) -- California Highway Patrol officers arrested a man wanted for failure to yield and a female passenger after a high-speed chase ended in an orchard in Ventura County.
The chase started in the Santa Clarita area after a grey car was seen by authorities running several stop signs.

Two people were believed to be in the vehicle at the time, according to authorities. The chase reached speeds of more than 100 mph.

The chase crossed into Ventura County and was headed through Fillmore before the suspects, a man and a woman, pulled over in Santa Paula and fled the vehicle on foot through the large citrus grove.

The man could be seen running through the orchard, leaving the woman behind. The CHP brought in K-9 units to search the area, eventually taking both the man and woman into custody.
