Three women were taken into custody Thursday after fleeing a stolen vehicle that was involved in a short pursuit with police in San Marino while a fourth suspect remained at large.

San Marino Police Department officers were sent just before 2 p.m. to the area of Huntington Drive and South Oak Knoll Avenue on reports of a stolen vehicle, according to a department statement.

Officers located the vehicle in the area and attempted to conduct a traffic stop, but the driver refused to yield and “continued traveling at a high rate of speed to evade officers.” Officers briefly pursued the vehicle, but terminated the pursuit due to public safety concerns.

“A few moments after the pursuit was terminated, a resident telephoned the police department observing a similar vehicle involved in a traffic collision at Huntington Drive and Pasqualito Drive,” according to the SMPD. “Officers arrived on scene to locate the vehicle unoccupied.”

Authorities contained the area and learned from witnesses that “three females and one other subject were observed running north from the vehicle” following the collision. The three female suspects were later located and arrested. Their names were not released.

The driver was still outstanding, and was described as a man who is between 18 and 20 years old who was last seen wearing a dark-colored sweatshirt.

Anyone with information on the case was asked to call the San Marino Police Department at 626-300-0720. Anonymous tips can be called in to Crime Stoppers at 800-222-8477 or submitted online at lacrimestoppers.org.
