Police chase ends in La Mesa, 3 in custody

LA MESA - Three people are in custody Friday after a police pursuit ended in La Mesa.

The pursuit began Friday afternoon in the area near Interstate 805 at Imperial Avenue. According to San Diego police, officers saw three people – one adult and two minors – "casing" a location in Paradise Hills. When one of them realized they were being watched, they got into a car and drove off.

The adult driver – who had a felony warrant – eventually pulled over near eastbound Interstate 8 at Fletcher Parkway and was arrested by officers.

Police said the two minors were being detained because they did not actually commit a crime.
