LAPD Pursuit Of Driver Suspected Of Stealing MTA Supervisor's Vehicle Surrenders In North Hollywood

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — A suspect who allegedly stole a MTA supervisor's vehicle Wednesday led officers with the Los Angeles Police Department on a pursuit through the valley.

According to police, the white 2015 Ford Explorer was stolen in the Norwalk area shortly after 10 p.m.

The suspect came to a stop in a North Hollywood 7-Eleven parking lot shortly after 11 p.m.

Police blocked off traffic on Coldwater Canyon Avenue at Vanowen Street, placed a spike strip under the front tires of the vehicle and fired a beanbag round into the back window of the vehicle.

The driver then sped off for a brief pursuit, coming to a stop a short time later with a flat tire and getting out of the vehicle — surrendering, without incident, to police.
