Stolen vehicle suspect taken into custody after pursuit through LA, San Bernardino counties

SANTA FE SPRINGS, Calif. (KABC) -- A stolen vehicle suspect led police on an hour-long chase from Los Angeles County into San Bernardino County before being taken into custody Friday afternoon.

The California Highway Patrol says the chase was initiated around 11:50 a.m. after the driver crossed over a double yellow line in the City of Industry.

The pursuit - which topped 70 mph at times - jumped from the 605 Freeway to the 10 Freeway, passing through Norwalk, Bellflower, Lakewood, and surrounding areas before entering into West Covina.

Several patrol vehicles followed closely behind the suspect in the carpool lane.

Moderate traffic on the freeways periodically slowed down the chase, prompting the driver to weave between several cars.

About an hour after the pursuit began, the driver exited the 10 Freeway in Ontario, with CHP officers keeping a short distance on surface streets.

The driver exited the vehicle in the parking lot of a medical facility in Rancho Cucamonga, where a K-9 took him down in front of the building.

The suspect was taken into custody without further incident around 1 p.m.
