    ELB Chase As L.A. Sheriff Pursues Suspect Up Bellflower Blvd.; LBPD Assists With Spike Strip @ Willow

    (Sept. 22, 2003) -- A pursuit went up busy Bellflower Blvd. at midmorning on Sept. 22, part of a thirty minute L.A. County Sheriff chase that went through ELB.

    A number of readers emailed to report seeing what they described as about a dozen black and whites...which were LASO units. LBPD Public Information Officer Nancy Pratt said LBPD units weren't in the chase itself...but LBPD did assist.

    L.A. County Sheriff Sgt. Oglesby of LASO's Cerritos station credited LBPD with great assistance for getting a spike strip down at Bellflower Blvd. just north of Willow St. LBPD Public Information Officer Nancy Pratt says the suspect hit that strip. However, he kept going...and LASO Sgt. Oglesby says he hit another one in Lakewood near Allington St...which ended the pursuit.

    The chain of events began shortly after 8:00 a.m. in the 18000 block of Studebaker Rd in Cerritos when a person walking to a parking lot was approached by a man with a gun who asked for money. The victim had no money, the suspect left, and the victim reported what took place to LASO which broadcast a suspect description on its radio.

    About ten minutes later, an LASO deputy observed a person meeting that description...and a thirty minute chase followed. It began in Bellflower and wound its way through Cerritos and LB before ending in Lakewood, where LASO took the suspect into custody.
