WOODLAND HILLS—Police pursued an armed robbery suspect in and around Woodland Hills on Monday, December 31. The chase began after 9 p.m. near Valley Circle and Roscoe when police noticed someone in an older model Lexus reportedly driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

At first, it was believed that the man was wanted for a DUI, but after running the vehicle's plates, police reported the man was wanted in connection to an armed robbery.

During the chase, the suspect drove on the wrong side of the road and through red traffic lights. An LAPD helicopter kept a searchlight on the suspect's vehicle throughout the chase. Police had laid out spike strips at least twice as the first attempt proved to be unsuccessful.

The suspect stayed mostly on streets except for a brief period on the eastbound Ventura 101 Freeway in which the suspect exceeded a speed of 80 mph.

After getting off the freeway, the suspect's vehicle received a flat tire due to the officers' second spike strip attempt.
The chase ended 20 minutes later when the suspect fled from the vehicle and was tackled down by a police officer.
