A robbery suspect remains at large after a vehicle pursuit that began in Buena Park ended in Pasadena, where the suspect abandoned his pickup truck.

At about 11 p.m. Thursday, California Highway Patrol officers in East Los Angeles were notified of a Buena Park police car tailing a white Ford F-250 that matched the description of a robbery suspect, which was going north on the Santa Ana (5) Freeway at Slauson Avenue, in Commerce, the CHP reported.

As the pair went to the northbound Long Beach (710) Freeway, CHP units tried to initiate an enforcement stop of the pickup truck.

CHP units continued pursuing the truck as it went to the northbound Santa Ana (5) Freeway, to the northbound Hollywood (101) Freeway, and eventually to the northbound Pasadena (110) Freeway, where the pickup truck exited the freeway and took the surface streets in Pasadena.

“Two passengers fled on foot, as the pursuit continued,” the CHP reported.

A little after 11:26 p.m., the driver abandoned the truck and fled on foot to a nearby parking structure near De Lacey Avenue and Green Street, where a containment was set up with the Pasadena Police Department.

No arrests were made and the containment was shut down at approximately 12:30 a.m. Friday.

The CHP’s East Los Angeles office placed an evidence hold on the white Ford F-250 for the Orange County Sheriff’s Department and will be working with the department in their follow-up investigation.

The CHP asked anyone with any information regarding the pursuit to call them at (323) 980-4600.
