Police: Man stole luxury car from local dealer, led officers on chase

Police chased and arrested a man accused of stealing a brand new luxury car from a Kearney Mesa Infiniti dealer Sunday.

SAN DIEGO — A man stole a brand-new luxury car out of a Kearny Mesa dealership’s lot and led police on a lengthy chase down San Diego freeways Sunday.

Workers at Infiniti Kearny Mesa called police about a man behaving erratically at the dealership just before 11 a.m., San Diego police Sgt. Thomas Sullivan said.

A short time later, the same man took off in an Infiniti QX50 from the dealer lot, Sullivan said.

The suspect led both San Diego police and California Highway Patrol officers onto state Route 52, then onto northbound Interstate 15. He was eventually taken into custody near Miramar Road.
