After a lengthy containment and search, a man who recklessly evaded Glendora Police into West Covina escaped capture Monday morning.
The pursuit was very brief, lasting about a minute, and began in Covina on the border with Glendora. The suspect parked his vehicle on Workman Avenue near Morada Avenue and fled into a residential area. The West Covina, Covina and Glendora police departments conducted yard searches, but did not find the suspect.
A Glendora officer assigned to Fourth of July DUI patrols witnessed the driver of an unknown-type car driving recklessly without headlights around 11:06 p.m. The officer attempted to stop the driver who fled, initiating the pursuit, said Sgt. Shelly Gold of Glendora Police.
The pursuit stuck to surface streets.
The pursuing officer attempted to catch up to the reckless driver. The officer located the vehicle, which was already abandoned, Gold said.
The search ended around 12:05 a.m., Gold said.
The suspect was only described as a male.
The vehicle was towed away for evidence.
