Earlier this morning on ABC 7 News, police chased down and apprehended the driver of a Stumptown Coffee truck somewhere along the Interstate 14 freeway near Placerita Canyon in North Los Angeles County. The suspect, who was reportedly wanted for a stolen vehicle, was chased on the 5 and 14 freeways, plus surface streets, before eventually abandoning the truck in the high occupancy lane on the 14 freeway. The chase was considered a “slow speed” chase with just “a few erratic moves” before coming to an end just past noon, according to KTLA.
The suspect then crossed the other side of the freeway, narrowly missing oncoming vehicles, and was apprehended by police, who had their guns drawn. No one was injured.
Before the chase, the suspect allegedly drove the truck in circles inside of parking lot, hitting a vehicle in the process. These larger refrigerated trucks typically transport cold brew coffee and Stumptown’s ready-to-drink products instead of roasted coffee.
