Suspect taken into custody after high-speed chase ends outside Commerce Casino



COMMERCE, Calif. (KABC) — A felony warrant suspect was taken into custody in Commerce on Friday afternoon after a high-speed chase that made its way through three counties, authorities said.

The pursuit, which began in Riverside County, reached speeds of up to 90 mph as it transitioned from the westbound 91 Freeway in Anaheim to the northbound 5 Freeway. The man behind the wheel of a red Dodge Dart exited the 5 in Commerce and moments later pulled up in front of the Crowne Plaza Hotel, adjacent to the Commerce Casino, about 12:45 p.m.

He exited the sedan and crossed the street into the parking lot of a commercial facility. As the suspect was approached by officers from the California Highway Patrol and Riverside Police Department, he removed his black sweatshirt, placed his hands in the air and lifted his T-shirt in an apparent effort to show he was not armed.
