Three suspects accused in a cell phone robbery in the Encino area Tuesday were tracked electronically and taken into custody a short time later in Glendale, authorities said.
The unnamed victim was confronted late Tuesday morning in the 18000 block of Ventura Boulevard, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
A car occupied by the suspects, who were not immediately identified, went onto the eastbound Ventura (134) Freeway and exited in Glendale, trailed by LAPD and California Highway Patrol officers who were given its location via a tracking system.
The officers pulled the car over about 11 a.m. near a storage facility on San Fernando Road, prompting closure of a section of the roadway as a precaution.
