LOS ANGELES (AP/CNN/KABC) - A wild pursuit of bank robbers across Southern California has come to an end with the capture of two men who had hurled cash out of their SUV's windows during the chase.
The vehicle became blocked by traffic in South Los Angeles at late morning Wednesday and sheriff's deputies pulled the men out. A large crowd surrounded the scene and officers set up skirmish lines to move people away.
Sheriff's Capt. Mike Parker tells KCAL-TV that it began with four men committing an armed robbery in the Santa Clarita Valley in northern Los Angeles County.
The robbers fled south and en route two robbers bailed out in the San Fernando Valley.
The pursuit took freeways to downtown Los Angeles and then into neighborhoods where people ran into streets.
