Saturday, February 09, 2013

Three suspected gang members are in jail Saturday after a high speed chase that began in Sanger and ended in Fresno

The California Highway Patrol says Sanger police started tracking a stolen car around 10:30 a.m.

Officers tried to make a stop, but the driver sped away.

Authorities chased the car all the way to this field near Backer and Pitt Avenues, where they arrested the three suspects.

Investigators say they also found an empty holster and drugs inside the car.

California highway patrol Sgt. Gil Peirsol said, "One of the passengers is wanted in questioning in a number of crimes, so drugs and weapons charges."

The CHP says the suspects were driving as fast as 90 mph an hour during the chase.
