WHITTIER (CBSLA.com) — A woman and a man were taken into custody in Whittier Friday after deputies began pursuing a U-Haul truck and the suspects took off on foot.

At one point, deputies began following a U-Haul truck.

The driver sped away and officers briefly lost track of the vehicle.

The L.A. County Sheriff’s Department airship eventually spotted the U-Haul truck and notified deputies.

At one point, the truck stopped and a man and woman exited and began running.

The woman was arrested nearby.

Soon after, a resident called 911 to report a suspicious-looking man in her backyard.

Deputies chased the suspect through several yards before using “less-than-lethal” weapons to stop him and take him into custody.

No further details were immediately available.
