Man in Leads Police on Chase in Stolen U-Haul

PACOIMA, Calif. (KTLA) — A driver in a stolen U-Haul led the LAPD on a wild pursuit through the north San Fernando Valley Wednesday night.

Sky5 was overhead after officers spotted the truck, from Arizona, speeding on the 5 Freeway and the 14 Freeway.

The suspect refused to stop, got off the freeway and led police on a chase until he bailed out of the moving truck near Kagel Canyon and Laurel Canyon in Pacoima.

He then ran into a condo complex, where officers chased him down and took him into custody.

It turned out that the back of the U-Haul truck was completely empty, police said.
