A suspect wanted for reckless driving and evading police led authorities on a near two-hour chase through the San Fernando Valley with his German shepherd in his truck, ending in Sylmar Saturday.

San Fernando police began pursuing the suspect’s pickup at 10:15 p.m. Friday in San Fernando. The chase spanned several cities and three freeways before the California Highway Patrol took over.

CHP officers used a PIT maneuver to get the truck to stop, said CHP Officer Elizabeth Kravig. The chase ended in the area of Tyler Street and Foothill Boulevard in Sylmar, said Kravig.

The driver was taken into custody. The dog was unharmed.
