Police pursuing a stolen vehicle out of Garden Grove temporarily shut down traffic near the Long Beach Towne Center on Wednesday afternoon.

The Garden Grove Police Department received a call about a stolen vehicle at about 12:35PM, said GGPD spokesman Ben Stauffer.

The car was abandoned on the 605 Freeway/Carson Blvd. offramp, said GGPD spokesman Ben Stauffer, and the suspects fled on foot.

Long Beach Police Department and California Highway Patrol officers assisted the GGPD by setting up a perimeter near the Long Beach Towne Center in hope of finding the suspects, Stauffer said, but were unsuccessful after 20 minutes.

The perimeter was opened back up to traffic at about 1:10PM, Stauffer said.
