SAN DIEGO - Police used a spike strip early Friday to stop a stolen car and arrest a burglary suspect after an hour-long chase from El Cajon to Carlsbad.

The pursuit started in El Cajon at 12:23 a.m. when police identified the driver of a white Toyota Prius as a possible burglary suspect. When they tried to pull him over, he took off and sped along interstates 8, 805, and 5 to Carlsbad.

The driver got off Interstate 5 at La Costa Avenue and eventually made his way to Carlsbad Boulevard, driving at speeds around 70 mph and blowing several red lights in the process. Police laid a spike strip across Carlsbad Boulevard just before 1:30 a.m., blowing out several tires on the Prius.

A California Highway Patrol car eventually executed a pit maneuver on the the fleeing Prius, causing it to  spin out and come to a stop at 5140 Carlsbad Boulevard.

Officers forced the driver out of the stolen car at gunpoint and arrested him. They found drugs inside when they searched it.

No one was hurt during the pursuit.
