Three suspects involved in a pursuit with authorities in the Emerald Hills area of San Diego on Thursday were arrested.

According to the San Diego Police Department (SDPD), the pursuit began near the eastbound State Route 94 and Imperial Avenue. 

The vehicle failed to yield to a police officer and took off, police said, later crashing into a guardrail on Kelton Road.

All three suspects ran from the vehicle and went down into a canyon area. They then climbed up a steep embankment full of brush into a residential area.

With the help of the SDPD K-9 unit, the ABLE helicopter, officers were able to arrest the suspects.

According to police, officers found one handgun inside the abandoned vehicle and two guns in the location where the suspects were arrested.

There were no injuries.
