Teens arrested after leading high-speed chase

SPRING VALLEY, Calif. (KGTV) - Two teens were taken into custody Friday after a high-speed pursuit ended in a crash in Spring Valley.

San Diego police, acting on a LoJack hit out of Chula Vista, spotted a stolen vehicle in the 4000 block of Imperial Avenue. However, when officers tried to pull the red Subaru Impreza over, the driver sped away.

Reaching speeds up to 110 mph, the car traveled southbound on Interstate 805 before heading east on state Route 54.

The Subaru exited in the Spring Valley area but crashed into a car parked in front of a Kmart store in the 900 block of Sweetwater Road.

Officers arrested the two juveniles -- a male and female -- and recovered a fake handgun from the vehicle.

A witness told 10News, "A girl was driving and a guy was in the passenger's seat. As soon as they hit the other car, the cops were out of their cars in an instant with guns drawn. It was a female driver and a male passenger … insane, putting people's lives in danger, come on."

The owner of the Subaru told 10News he's had the car for three years and referred to it as his "baby."

He also had three words for the two arrested teens: "Get a job."

No injuries were immediately reported in the incident.
