LOS ANGELES (CNS) - A group of people who robbed a Bank of America in Santa Clarita led sheriff's deputies on a wild chase today that sparked a circus-like atmosphere in South Los Angeles, where the suspects tossed money out of their SUV, prompting residents to run into streets and crowd around deputies as the suspects were arrested.
The chase began shortly after 10 a.m, when at least four suspects robbed the bank branch in the 18000 block of Soledad Canyon Road in the Santa Clarita area. Deputies began pursuing the suspects, who were in a dark-colored SUV, starting a pursuit that initially led to the Sylmar area.
Sheriff's Capt. Mike Parker told KCAL9 that two suspects jumped out of the vehicle when it stopped on Yarnell Street in Sylmar, and another jumped out on nearby Hubbard Street. Those suspects remained at large, and sheriff’s deputies set up a large containment area as they swept through the area.
