Four young men in a white Hyundai who refused to pull over on northbound Interstate 5 tonight (January 27, 2010) at approximately 8:35 PM exited at Tamarack, ditched the car and tried to make a run for it near the corner of Tamarack and Pio Pico. Carlsbad Police and the San Diego County Sheriff’s helicopter responded.
According to a witness, the young men jumped from the car while it was still rolling. “I was sitting, waiting at the light when they came off the freeway and their car kind of spun out in the intersection. Then they all jumped out and ran,” the man said. “The car continued on and kind of bumped into mine.”
One suspect was apprehended on the scene and the Sheriff’s helicopter was still circling overhead at 8:50 PM apparently searching for three more suspects. Some allegedly stolen clothing was reportedly found in the trunk of the car.
