L.A. County Sheriff’s deputies had responded to the scene of a home burglary in the 32000 block of Ridgetop Lane in Castaic.

The chase went from the 5 Freeway to the 110 Freeway, ending in South L.A. at Vernon Avenue, where three suspects were arrested.

Good job. I hope they can tie these criminals to the other 3+ recent burglaries in this area.

Why would you give the pursuit over. The Sheriff policy, though conservative in chases, too conservatrive in my opinion, confirmed the felony occurred. Once you confirm the Felony occurred the Sheriff will pursue all over.

A few months back plamdale deps pursued from palmdale to azusa for a domestic violence suspect.

Many stations would not of given that up. Santa clarita is an odd station

Because Region I is weak as are most of the watch commanders. Does anyone really want to work or manage at SCV because they want to work hard and push the policy to the limit? No.

Because the CHP are better pursuit drivers.
