FULLERTON, Calif. - A suspect in an armed robbery at a Riverside County jewelry store led police on a high speed chase along busy freeways and through residential streets before surrendering to more than a dozen officers some 60 miles away in Los Angeles
Anaheim Police Sgt. Bob Dunn told KCAL-TV at least five suspects fled the scene of the robbery Wednesday in Moreno Valley and were stopped in Fullerton. One person was detained and four others ran off.
Two students at Cal State Fullerton tell KABC-TV they were told to evacuate because dangerous suspects were on campus.
One suspect carjacked a silver sedan and drove onto the westbound 91 Freeway, speeding erratically through rush hour traffic.
News helicopters showed California Highway Patrol officers chasing the car until it exited onto LA County surface streets.
He ran from the car and surrendered to dozens of officers on a baseball diamond in Watts.
