The driver of a suspected stolen car led LAPD officers on a chase through the San Fernando Valley that ended abruptly Tuesday when she apparently surrendered and got out of the car after officers apparently raised their weapons.

The pursuit began around 12 p.m. when the suspect drove a silver Toyota Camry north on the 5 Freeway in the Burbank area. During the chase, the suspect initially reached high speeds, but the driver was forced to pull over to the side of the road several times.

Five minutes after SkyCal began the chase at 12:30 p.m., the sedan stopped near Raymer Street and Kester Avenue in Van Nuys after having stopped and parked at another location moments earlier. The driver remained there for seven minutes before driving away and stopping again.

Then she ran off again.

The pursuit ended at 12:42 p.m. near the corner of Raymer and Keswick Streets when the driver encountered a parked LAPD patrol car with two officers standing directly in front of it, apparently pointing their weapons at her.

There, the driver stopped the car and eventually crawled out of the driver’s side window. Within a few minutes, she was holding her arms up in the air and appeared to want to surrender before officers handcuffed her.
