The chase began about 10:15 a.m. on the southbound 15 Freeway in Rancho Cucamonga, where CHP attempted to pull a black Toyota Tacoma pickup truck over for speeding, according to CHP Officer Manzano.

The driver, who was alone in the truck, was observed flashing gang signs and failed to yield, Manzano said.

During the chase, which headed west on the 210 Freeway and onto surface streets in Pomona, the driver threw a gun from the truck, the officer told KTLA.

About 10:55 a.m., the driver stopped in a parking lot of the Pomona Police Department — at 490 W. Mission Blvd. The individual appeared to enter the station lobby, aerial video from Sky5 showed.

A few minutes later, a police official and a CHP officer walked the man back outside to the lot, where he was in handcuffs.

The driver was placed inside a CHP patrol SUV and taken into custody.

The gun that was thrown from the pickup was recovered by Pomona police, Manzano said.
