As the vehicle exited a parking lot, stop sticks were used successfully by police. The truck continued northbound on Idylwyld Drive, sideswiping three vehicles.

Police said the pursuit stopped when the vehicle crossed the meridian into oncoming traffic.

Around five minutes later, a caller reported a vehicle driving very fast northbound in the southbound lanes of Idylwyld.

The vehicle was then reported at a business in the 3800-block of Idylwyld Drive North. Police arrested a man and a woman exiting the parked truck.

Officers found bear spray, a knife and ammunition inside the truck.
