Los Angeles Times

LOS ANGELES — A man who carjacked a vehicle and led police on a high-speed chase across three counties before being apprehended near the Mexican border is in custody today, authorities said.

The pursuit started at 8.39 p.m. Thursday in South Gate and was reported as a carjacking, said Officer Jesse Udovich, a spokesman for the California Highway Patrol in San Diego.
LA County sheriff’s deputies gave chase as the suspect headed south on Los Angeles and Orange County freeways, Udovich said. CHP officers from both counties joined the pursuit.
