PALMDALE – A 34-year-old man was arrested Sunday after leading police on a chase from Los Angeles to Palmdale in a stolen car, authorities said.
Alfred Samuel Treviso was arrested around 4:21 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 17, after he crashed the vehicle near the intersection of Avenue P and 50th Street East, according to a California Highway Patrol report.
The incident began when the Los Angeles Police Department received a LoJack hit regarding a stolen 2013 Scion FR-S in the area of Devonshire Street and Sepulveda, CHP officials said.
“When LAPD ground units attempted to contact the driver, the [suspect] fled northbound on I-5 to the northbound SR-14, where CHP (Newhall) was requested to take over the pursuit,” the CHP report states.
CHP-Newhall officers chased the vehicle north on SR-14 before turning over the pursuit to Antelope Valley CHP officers at Santiago Road. The car thief exited the 14 Freeway on Avenue S and drove the stolen car through several surface streets in Palmdale, CHP officials said.
“The pursuit terminated at the intersection of Avenue P and 50th Street East when the [suspect vehicle] failed to negotiate a turn and left the roadway,” the CHP report states.
The car crashed into a raised dirt shoulder and became disabled, according to the CHP, and then Treviso and his female passenger were taken into custody without incident.
“The passenger was found to be an unwilling participant of the vehicle theft and pursuit. She was released from the scene,” the CHP report states.
Treviso was arrested on suspicion of felony evading and vehicle theft, and he was booked in lieu of $75,000 bail.
