LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) - A man suspected of stealing a truck was taken into custody in Buena Park after leading authorities on a pursuit that began in Lakewood.

According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, around 7:10 p.m., deputies began pursuing the man in the reported stolen Toyota truck on the eastbound Artesia (91) Freeway.
