    “Officers ended up retrieving a second stolen car in Mission Valley. Through conducting witness checks over there we learned who they were.  Connected the dots… and traced to the two suspects from the pursuit the other day,” said Sgt. Flamand.

    Police pursued the stolen car on Friday morning from La Mesa to Clairemont to UTC, as the 1988 Toyota Camry and its occupants avoided police units and spike strips. Police eventually called off the pursuit due to safety concerns.

    The car, which had been stolen earlier in the week, was eventually found in Mira Mesa after the suspect crashed into a pole, according to police.

    But officers say they did not stop looking.

    “We're going to find you one way or another.  We're not going to let you go and not come and find you,” said Sgt. Dale Flamand.
