A driver in a stolen car led police on a short chase through West Long Beach before bailing out and trying to run this morning, according to authorities.

Officers on patrol spotted the stolen car around 9:15 a.m. near the intersection of Anaheim Street and the Terminal Island Freeway, Long Beach Police Department spokeswoman Jennifer De Prez said.

Police chased the car until the driver stopped about four miles away near 223rd Street and Alameda Street in Carson, De Prez said.

The driver tried to ditch the car and run, but officers surrounded the area and were able to catch him, according to police. They also detained two passengers who’d been in the car, De Prez said.

Ultimately, the driver was arrested on suspicion of driving a stolen vehicle and for allegedly having an outstanding warrant, police said.

One of the passengers was released, but the other was arrested for also allegedly having an outstanding warrant, De Prez said.
