SAN MARCOS, Calif. — Four robbery suspects led officers on a vehicle pursuit Friday in San Marcos before fleeing on foot and later being taken into custody.

An off-duty deputy witnessed three suspects robbing a Verizon store in the 700 block of Center Drive just after 11 a.m. while another suspect waited in a vehicle outside, according to the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department.

The suspects then led deputies on a vehicle pursuit northbound on Interstate 15, heading eventually into Riverside County, before their vehicle collided with two others, including a tractor trailer, the department reported.

No injuries were reported at the collision scene.

One suspect was taken into custody on the freeway and the other three fled on foot into a commercial district after the vehicle came to a stop. Riverside County sheriff’s deputies helped locate the suspects, who were booked into custody without further incident at the Vista Detention Facility.

A suspect was taken to a hospital with minor injuries and later released.
