Local news

A driver and passenger were taken into custody following a pursuit through Alhambra, Lincoln Heights and El Sereno Tuesday night. 

The incident began around 8:25 p.m. in Alhambra, after a bystander reported seeing a female who loaded a rifle into a red Honda sedan, according to Alhambra police Lt. Tai Seki.

When officers found the vehicle, it refused to stop and so a pursuit ensued, Seki said. 

The Honda was described as having paper plates, according to Officer William Cooper with the Los Angeles Police Department.

Something was dropped from the vehicle in the area of Mission Road and Baldwin Street in Lincoln Heights, Cooper said. 

Sky5 arrived above the chase around 8:50 p.m., as the vehicle was making its way across surface streets in El Sereno.

Moments later, the sedan’s female driver pulled over in the area of Guardia Avenue and surrendered to authorities. A male passenger then emerged from the vehicle and was also detained.

Seki said the female suspect was in custody on suspicion of felony evading.

LAPD officers were later canvassing in Lincoln Heights in search of the item dropped from the vehicle, Cooper said.

No further details were immediately available.
