LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Three burglary suspects in a Mercedes sedan led police on a high-speed chase Tuesday from the San Fernando Valley to the Inland Empire until officers stopped them with a well-executed PIT maneuver.
The chase started just before 6 p.m. in the northeast San Fernando Valley when LAPD officers with the Mission Division began trailing burglary suspects in a dark-gray Mercedes sedan.
They fled east over the 210 freeway and then passed Glendale and headed through Pasadena, eventually getting into the San Gabriel Valley and then the Inland Empire.
The LAPD was passing off the chase to CHP officers.

It is believed there were three burglary suspects inside the Mercedes, which had tinted windows.
While they were driving through Southern California rush-hour traffic, they were able at times to maintain speeds over 50 mph by sticking to the carpool lanes and weaving through traffic when necessary.
Eventually they transitioned onto the 215 Freeway in the Inland Empire.
By around 7 p.m. the suspects had pulled off the 215 Freeway and were driving on surface streets in the Muscoy area when a CHP vehicle was able to approach from the side and perform a PIT maneuver, spinning the Mercedes 180 degrees.
Other cruisers quickly surrounded the vehicle and the driver soon surrendered without further incident. Two passengers - one male, one female - also exited and surrendered.
