PACIFICA – Police on Monday arrested a 26-year-old Stockton man on suspicion of leading officers in a stolen vehicle pursuit from Pacifica to Daly City.
Just before 9:45 a.m., officers were called to the 200 block of Gateway Drive for a report of a stolen vehicle, the Pacifica Police Department said in a statement. Officers spotted the driver as he was leaving an apartment complex parking lot and tried to stop him.
Police said the driver did not pull over and led officers in a pursuit. The chase ended after he hit a guardrail and came to a stop on the southbound Interstate 280 off-ramp to Serramonte Boulevard.
Officers told the driver and his passenger to get out of the vehicle, but they did not comply, police said. After 50 minutes of negotiations, the driver finally emerged and was arrested.
Police said the passenger was found inside the vehicle and taken to a hospital with injuries that were not considered life-threatening.
The driver was booked into San Mateo County jail on charges of buying or receiving a stolen vehicle as well as evading a peace officer and causing injury to another person. Police said he was on probation for a previous auto theft conviction.
Anyone with information related to the case can contact the police department at 650-738-7314.
