COMPTON (CBSLA) — Cash was found scattered on a Compton sidewalk, but one of the suspects that took the cash in an armed robbery out of Orange County remains at large.

A police pursuit that started in Anaheim at 5:18 a.m. ended in on 157th between Visalia and Haskins in Compton, where the suspects threw the money out of a window.

After three men were reported committing an armed robbery at a Walgreens on South State College in Anaheim, police spotted the car full of five suspects near Orangethorpe and State College, touching off a pursuit.

The suspects got onto the 91 Freeway, throwing money out of the car, and got off the freeway in Compton, where the pursuit ended.

Four of the suspects were arrested: a 24-year-old woman, and three males ages 17, 18 and 19, Anaheim police Sgt. Daron Wyatt said. A fifth suspect, believed to be a male in his late teens, remains at large.

Officers who searched the car found money and a gun inside, police said. Detectives are working with law enforcement personnel from other jurisdictions to determine of the suspects were involved in other crimes, Wyatt said.
