Pair Arrested in Pomona After High-Speed Chase
POMONA, Calif. (KTLA) — Two people were arrested in Pomona early Tuesday after leading police on a wild pursuit that reached speeds of up to 130 mph, authorities said.
It all began around 11 p.m. on Monday in south Orange County, when a deputy spotted a stolen black Honda occupied by a male driver and a female passenger.
The driver refused to stop, and got on the northbound 5 Freeway in Lake Forest.
The California Highway Patrol took over the pursuit, which continued on the northbound 57 Freeway and the eastbound 60 Freeway.
The pair eventually exited at Phillips Ranch Road and drove into a residential area of Pomona.
They abandoned the car on Oak Cliff Drive and fled on foot.
The woman was apprehended within about ten minutes, but the man evaded police for more than an hour.
“With the help of Pomona PD and also an Orange County deputy sheriff who had a K-9, we were able to take both of them into custody,” said CHP Sgt. Eric Nolte.
The man and woman were not immediately identified. The CHP was the lead agency handling the investigation.
