COMPTON (CNS) - A suspect potentially linked to a weekend carjacking led authorities on a chase from Compton to the South Los Angeles today area before being taken into custody. The pursuit began about 10:45 a.m., when deputies tried to pull over the silver Kia sedan near Wilmington and Manchester avenues, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.
The motorist led authorities on a chase over surface streets and on the Glenn M. Anderson (105) Freeway and the Harbor (110) Freeway before finally stopping about 11:45 a.m. near Western Avenue and 88th Street and surrendering. Along the way, authorities backed off of the ground pursuit at times, but kept monitoring the progress of the female suspect via helicopter.
The driver's name was not immediately released. It was not known if the suspect was involved in the armed carjacking that occurred Saturday or just driving the car believed to be connected to the crime.
