Carjacking Suspect Captured in La Verne, California

Our quiet city of La Verne, California experienced an unusual crime yesterday as a carjacking suspect led the Pomona Police Department on a high speed chase that ended in La Verne. The suspect apparently pulled a women from her car on Garey Avenue, but did get far as he was spotted immediately by the Pomona P.D., and the chase began.

As the crook headed east on Bonita Ave. at a high rate of speed, he t-boned a car at B Street and Bonita, which also caused another car to be hit. The man that was hit from the side was removed from his vehicle with the jaws of life before being airlifted to the hospital. Two others were also sent to the hospital with less serious injuries.

As the suspect exited the damaged car he was quickly surrounded by the Pomona and La Verne Police Officers. Witnesses shared that the man was screaming and would not comply with the officers orders to get onto his knees. I suspect he was under the influence of something as it took three bursts from tasers to get him down.
