Update: High-speed Chase Ends in Felony Arrests

Four suspects were arrested in Baldwin Park Friday morning after allegedly leading sheriff's deputies and West Covina Police on a high-speed chase.

Four suspects in a stolen car were arrested in Baldwin Park this morning after leading sheriff's deputies and police on a half-hour chase that reached speeds near 90 miles per hour, authorities said.

Deputies checked the Nissan Sentra's license plate number, determined it was stolen out of El Monte and tried to pull it over around 2:30 a.m. when it exited the eastbound San Bernardino (10) Freeway at the Barranca Street exit in West Covina, said Lt. Joe Chavez of the sheriff's Industry Station.

The Nissan failed to stop and entered the westbound 10, hitting speeds of around 90 mph, Chavez said. Deputies only chased the car for a few minutes before West Covina police took over the pursuit, West Covina police Lt. Ken Plunkett said.

Officers chased the car into Baldwin Park, where the suspects exited the freeway and drove around on surface streets before pulling over and surrendering at 3:07 a.m. near the corner of Athol and Waco streets, Plunkett said.

The four male suspects will be booked on suspicion of grand theft auto, felony evading "and whatever else we find," Plunkett said.
