During the pursuit, the suspect turned off the vehicle's headlights while speeding through city streets in Lake Balboa.

Officers used spike strips twice during the pursuit. The second successfully caused the suspect to pull over near Welby Way and Yarmouth Avenue in Reseda. The suspects did not immediately exit the vehicle. 

After a brief standoff, a woman walked past the police and approached the stolen vehicle before talking to the driver. Shortly after, two occupants exited the car with their hands up. 

The woman said she was the mother of the person in the passenger seat of the stolen vehicle.
