Driver Of Stolen Vehicle Arrested After Police Pursuit

MONTEREY PARK (CBS) — The driver of a stolen vehicle was arrested Tuesday night following a police pursuit.

Sheriff’s deputies in Montebello ran the plates of a black pickup truck and discovered it was reported stolen.

Several patrol cars pursued the suspect through the streets of Montebello, East L.A., San Gabriel, and Monterey Park.

The pursuit began shortly after 8 p.m. near the intersection of Telegraph Road and Washington Boulevard.

The driver, 19-year-old Dyllan Nunez, traveled through city streets and maintained a speed of around 35 to 40 mph before entering the westbound 60 freeway.

After exiting the freeway on Atlantic Avenue, Nunez increased his speed to around 80 mph.

Shortly after 8:30 p.m., Nunez crashed into a parked vehicle in Alhambra and exited the vehicle on foot. He was later arrested.

Nunez was booked for felony evading, hit and run and a probation violation.

    Thank God, this so called Man does not have a gun. If so since the police are not there, and who knows where they are at. He could kill so many people right now. I have never seen anything like this. If I lived there I would want the police to protect me from this criminal. WHERE ARE YOU POLICE! WE NEED YOU NOW!

    • J-Dawg

      The Police are not there to protect you. They are there to take the report. If they happen to stop a crime in progress its because they were in the right place at the right time. It does not happen very often.

    • Bob James

      The LAPD is occupied with occupy LA. What a joke…

      • surfbum

        The real joke is that apparently you don’t understand that the sheriff’s and the LAPD are two different police agencies that patrol different areas. According to the article (which I read all the way through, and you apparently didn’t) the LAPD had nothing to do with this debacle whatsoever, but I guess a little thing like facts won’t stop you from bashing them for something they had no part in.

      • rich

        has nothing to do with LAPD this would fall in the LASD AND MONTEBELLO AND ALHAMBRA POLICE DEPTS

    • Roy Barback

      Miss Wood welcome to the real world these police can care less about your feelings or who they have to protect they just protect them selfs and find ways to justify what they do.

    • Nick Grande

      take it easy, dont you ever watch movies and hope for the bad guy to escape? What a rush , he evaded police and lives to steal again.

  • PAUL from Diamond Bar

    why did the police tracked the suspect so far behind??? just hope that they catch the guy…

  • Shawn Lazy Maiten

    i have an approximat address. 5315 Allan Street, Los Angeles, California, United States

    • PAUL from Diamond Bar

      hehehe.. if that didn’t help them.. i don’t know what will.. =)

      • Shawn Lazy Maiten

        I am just trying to provide information for the news team. I am not tryingto be in contact with the sherrifs Dept. If I was attempting to be in contact with the Sherrifs Dept. I would have specified.

  • Carlos

    Cops were trying to dump pursuit on another department so they pulled back far enough to let him run! Foolish!!! Look at the ppl in danger if he had a gun like Kathy said! C’mon now!!!

    • Shawn Lazy Maiten

      Not nessecessarily. They were out of there jurisdiction. The only legitamite legal way for them to continue with the pursuit, was if it was a known fact that the “suspect” had a lethal weapon with intint to use it.

      • Copsfailed

        A 2 ton truck is a “Lethal Weapon” when it smashes into you.. it was just luck that he did not kill someone when he wiped out. Epic police FAIL.

      • J-Dawg

        That’s not ture. The Sheriff’s Dept is a County Agency which means their jurisdiciton is all over the county. However, with his reckless driving towards the end, the watch commander made a decision to let the air unit follow and give the suspects location so when he did stop the ground units would come in and pick him up. Since they were in an area they do not patrol then it was tough to guide in the ground units.

      • Pedro Goldstein

        Hey idiot – in California peace officers have STATE WIDE authority, the sheriffs were just totally LAZY and kissed off this felon to whoever would take it.

  • Carlos

    LAPD was busy rounding up at Dodger Stadium for Disoccuping LA at City Hall. These vagrants are using our resources that prevent the Officers from Proctecting and Serving to a halt

    • surfbum

      Yes, the LAPD is busy with the Occupy hippies, but that wouldn’t have prevented them from taking care of business here. What WOULD prevent it is the fact that it happened in the sheriff’s jurisdiction, and they’re the ones who were involved in this.

      • Lasd

        @Carlos @surfbum this had nothing to do with LAPD this is a LASD case two different agencies people need to read better before posting

      • surfbum

        Uh @Lasd…. DUH! Re-read what I posted, because that’s exactly what I said. Now who needs to work on their reading comprehension? Irony much?

  • Bob James

    People comment on how the world is watching the LAPD to see what they do to occupy LA. The world should see what they didn’t do. Now I lost all respect for them…

    • surfbum

      You lost respect for an agency that had absolutely NOTHING to do with this, because you can’t understand the difference between the sheriff’s and Montebello PD, who DID handle this in THEIR jurisdiction, and the LAPD? Good grief. Not everything that happens with a police agency in Southern California is the LAPD!

  • Jo Sanch

    What happened to this guy?!?! KCAL forgot about him and went to cover Occupy LA!!!!

    • frank


    • citizen

      yeah, that was pretty MESSED UP on KCAL’s part!!
      c’mon there’s more to life than occupy LA…….. even worse is that this loser got away…………… i can’t believe it.

  • Tom

    I watched this on channel 9 as it happened. Nobody was forthcoming, but apparently right before the stolen pickup driver jumped out, the sherrif’s department stopped pursuing while handing it over to the CHP and the CHP never actually picked up the chase. The result was that the only people following the escaped driver was the the helicopter(s) and the single light from either the news helicopter or the police helicopter (not sure which). They eventually lost site of the guy. It looks like the guy escaped as he has had a good hour to do so — he needed only to walk away from the lit area by staying in shadows.

    • Dan

      All those years of playing Metal Gear Solid and Splinter Cell finally paid off.

    • dave

      the kcal helicopter was at the occupy scene around 10 pm. i think they were sent away from the pursuit and they never returned to the story which they had been covering with a live helicopter. nbc is reporting that the guy was on the loose for hours after he bailed.

  • Chelsea

    I am sick of seeing the occupy LA for weeks. I am more concerned with my safety and what is going on with the pursuit. The news coverage just cut off in the middle and never came back to it. What is currently going on with the pursuit?

    • Shawn Lazy Maiten

      I agree. They said the story would be continued into the next show. Obviously it did not.

  • Jo Sanch

    Interesting how they just stopped coverage of it, as if nothing ever happened.

    • dave

      yes, i could not believe they never reported what happined at the end of the pursuit. i continued to watch for one hour and kcal 9 never returned to the story.
      exactly what is the criteria for coverage kcal ??? how can you follow a story with a helicopter reporting every movement and then decide not to deal with the conclusion. no professionalism at all. just a real joke of a news agency.

  • Richard Harris

    Can we get an update on the guy!!!!???jeeez i have never seen this kind of unprofessionalism from cbs and kcal9 before.

  • Officer Morris, LAPD Special Unit

    Hello, just letting you know at approximatly at 9:20pm we have shot the man 37 times because he pulled a black object from his pants that we believed to be a dangerous weapon.

    • Officer Idiot

      GREAT JOB officer Morris, now try and find the guy that stole the truck.

    • Dan

      Mr. Suspect, is that you? You got home fast!

    • PAUL from Diamond Bar

      AWESOME JOB!!!!!!!!!!

  • Thomas C.

    Wait….what’s going on? What happened to all the coverage, and the police??

    No one is talking about it anymore…but the guy is still on the loose!

  • Jac­kie John­son

    Hello, just an upd­ate here: the suspect has gotten away and ploice have called off the chase. Our company Kc­al9 and C­B­S are too afraid to admit that the suspect got away.

  • Bob James

    Thank God I don’t live in LAPD jurisdiction. If I lived in Los Angeles I would be complaining to the mayor, everyone else and God. It’s ridiculous that they didn’t respond to this. This is the reason people should all own a gun. The government isn’t going to protect you…

    • surfbum

      Go re-read the article. It was the sheriff’s, not the LAPD. Different agencies. Different jurisdictions. If you’re going to complain about an agency make you sure you know which one deserves your specific complaints.

      • Bob James

        Sheriffs called off the pursuit. Vehicle crashed in LAPD area, so that means it’s now LAPD. If the Sheriffs were still pursing him, they would have had units to apprehend him. LAPD was busy with occupy LA and didn’t respond. LASO responded to clean up after the mess.

      • surfbum

        Straight from the article:

        “Shortly after 8:30 p.m., Nunez crashed into a parked vehicle in Alhambra and exited the vehicle on foot…”

        Last time I checked, Alhambra wasn’t part of LAPD jurisdiction. It has it’s own police department and everything! Again, know your facts before placing blame where it doesn’t belong.

  • John Miller

    Tonight I listened to the Capt of LASO on Ch 9. He said not to use logic… Well Capt. your attitute showed why society is in the gutter. The decision to stop following the car probally made by you enabled another crime and allowed the fugitive to escape for future work. You care about the safety of public, just be happy the fugitive did not hit a occupied car.. Or maybe next time he will and your carelfree attitute will put people in harms way

  • Carlos Cruz

    i think they lost the suspect! hahaha

  • fedup

    Great …concentrate on the harmless pot smokers and peacefull protesters and let the violent criminals run wild and get away with it… cops are only there to protect the criminals and bankers

    • Ashley

      ya well as lame as it is, those peacful protesters are a bunch of dirty homeless people making excuses to sleep somewhere without being cited for loitering and camping.

  • uhoh

    I wouldn’t say successfully evading capture. I’m sure the fingerprints he left behind are in the system.

  • jack davis

    Where were the police when this guy was sitting under the tent? Tell us where we can find out what happened, was he arrested? Did he just walk away when the police were not there?

  • KC

    What about the comment about the suspect got shot 20+ times?

    • :-P

      It was 37 times.

  • Jerry S

    Who continued the pursuit via helicopter after the sheriff department called of the pursuit on the ground. If KCAL continued shining their light an the suspect as he crashed his vehicle, they might be on the hook and bear some responsibility.

    Sad to say LAPD and LASD blew it. No cordination and it taking more than 15 minutes for any ground units to show up.

    • surfbum

      The LAPD blew it for not going into another city (Alhambra), out of their jurisdiction, to help? Okaaaay…..

  • Jackie Johnson Fan

    More importantly, Jackie, why did you leave KCAL?

    • Bob

      There was “2” reasons why I watched Channel 9 News.

  • Mr. Criminal

    With all those cops busy with the Occupy movement, time to let loose

  • Ralph Smith Sr.

    Looked to me like they wanted him to get away,
    Less paper work.
    And thanks kcal for giving us any update.
    kcal is the worst station for following a pursuit..
