HACIENDA HEIGHTS - A man and woman inside a wanted Chevy Malibu were detained after an abrupt end to a brief, high-speed chase Wednesday.
The suspects were detained after abruptly stopping for deputies at northbound Stimson Avenue at Sigman Street. Medics have been called for both suspects after the driver crashed into a curb near the end of the chase, according to Sheriff’s radio traffic.
A deputy with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Industry Station attempted to stop the Chevy Malibu at Three Palms and Hacienda Boulevard around 10:50 a.m. after discovering the license plate revealed the Malibu was wanted by law enforcement.
The driver refused to stop and evaded deputies by driving at high speed, sometimes at 70 miles per hour. The driver also ran a red light, deputies said.
The driver and passenger ended the chase after striking a curb in the 1600 block of Stimson Avenue.
It is unclear why the suspects were wanted by authorities.

HACIENDA HEIGHTS - A man and woman were finally taken into custody after avoiding numerous attempts at stopping their vehicle Friday night.
The two suspects were possibly connected to copper wire theft from the Rancho Cucamonga/San Bernardino area, according to California Highway Patrol radio traffic.
The pursuit entered the San Gabriel Valley just after 11 p.m. CHP officers from the Baldwin Park office entered the pursuit as it headed west on the 210 freeway.
The pursuit turned on to surface streets in the Bassett area east along Valley Boulevard from the southbound 605 freeway.
The driver fled into Hacienda Heights near William Steinmetz Park where the passenger fled the vehicle before the driver took off again.
The CHP used the Pursuit Intervention Technique twice to disable the suspect vehicle, but the driver was able to get away and ultimately fled the vehicle on foot near Garo Street and Anders Avenue where he was taken into custody.
