VAN NUYS, Calif. (KTLA) — The California Highway Patrol used the PIT maneuver to stop a stolen vehicle suspect who led authorities on a nearly 45-minute pursuit Wednesday.

LAPD officers first attempted to pull over the blue Nissan Pathfinder in Van Nuys after picking up a Lo-Jack notification that the vehicle had been stolen.

The suspect, who refused to stop, then took to the 405 and 118 freeways to lead officers on a high speed pursuit.

Video from Sky5 appeared to show the driver throwing something out of the SUV.

CHP officers spun the SUV out shortly after the driver exited the southbound 405 freeway at Pico Boulevard.

The suspect was ordered out of the vehicle and taken into custody.
