1 Arrest in Pursuit From College Area to Lemon Grove

A man was arrested Tuesday after a police pursuit that began in the College Area ended in Lemon Grove.

The pursuit began overnight when San Diego County Sheriff’s Department was notified about a stolen car near Alvarado Road and 70th Street in La Mesa.

The driver continued into Lemon Grove, deputies said, where he ditched the vehicle and ran, jumping over a fence.

Deputies initially lost sight of the suspect but then, minutes later, a neighbor alerted them that the suspect was in her garage.
