LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — A high-speed pursuit prompted by a pharmacy burglary in Irvine ended in a crash Thursday in South Los Angeles with prescription bottles spilling out of the car.

The chase ended in a crash into a tree at 96th and Western just before 5 a.m. Irvine police, who was chasing the suspect, say he had burglarized a pharmacy in Irvine and were able to follow him because one of the items stolen had a GPS tracker in it.

At the end of the chase, several prescription bottles – including hydrocodone and morphine — were seen spilling out of the car and scattered on the ground.

The suspect has been arrested.
