South Pasadena Police Arrest Suspects in Vehicle Theft

The South Pasadena Police Department said its officers arrested suspects in a stolen vehicle on Monday, April 1, at 4:24 p.m., shortly after a vehicle pursuit and foot chase.
Officers were first alerted to a Flock Safety camera notification for a stolen vehicle, which officers located and identified as a black 2020 Chevrolet Camaro, reported stolen from the city of Montebello. Responding officers attempted to stop the car at Fremont Avenue and Columbia Street but the driver fled onto the 110 Freeway. The driver exited the freeway at Avenue 43 and the officers lost sight of the vehicle, terminating the pursuit.
During their return to South Pasadena, officers encountered a collision at Figueroa Street and Marmion Way in Los Angeles. Following the collision, several bystanders chased after the stolen vehicle’s driver, a 19-year-old of Los Angeles, and his passenger, a 26-year-old of Whittier, both of whom fled the scene on foot.
South Pasadena officers swiftly located and arrested both men a short distance away. Subsequently, they were booked and held at the Alhambra City Jail pending arraignment. The occupants of the other vehicle involved in the collision sustained minor abrasions and received on-site medical treatment from Los Angeles City Fire Department paramedics.
The investigation of the collision is being handled by the Los Angeles Police Department’s Central Traffic Unit. Anyone with more information about the incident is urged to call the SPPD at (626) 403-7270. For those who would like to provide an anonymous tip, call Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-TIPS (8477).
