SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- Police officers chased down two drivers in stolen cars, but only one man was arrested early Wednesday morning.

According to San Diego Police, officers spotted a BMW that had just been stolen driving down Hotel Circle South in Mission Valley around 2 a.m. They followed the car, which appeared to be following another car, a black Dodge Charger.

When officers tried to pull them over, both drivers sped off in different directions.

Just when officers thought they lost the BMW, they found it in a Serra Mesa neighborhood. They moved in with their guns drawn and surrounded the car, but no one was inside.

Officers eventually found the suspect hiding in a nearby shed and took him into custody.

The driver of the Dodge Charger led officers towards Mission Valley, but that car was later found abandoned behind a Verizon store.
