PASADENA (CBSLA.com) — Police Friday evening stopped a motorist on the westbound 210 Freeway who was allegedly involved in a kidnapping.
Stu Mundel, reporting in Sky2, said police followed the suspect for “quite a while.”
The vehicle — a green BMW X5 registered out of Glendale — was stopped just past the Rosemead exit in Pasadena, said authorities.
The driver and a female passenger were both taken into custody.
The car had tinted windows and police approached the vehicle with extreme caution.
While police investigated the scene and checked whether there was a kidnap victim in the vehicle, all but the express lane was shut down. Traffic was tied up for miles.
“It’s backed up to the 605,” reported Mundel.
