Police Chase Lands Two in Jail
Two men are behind bars following a chase that began in east Bakersfield and ended in the southwest part of town.
Bakersfield police officers tried to pull over a vehicle identified as stolen near East California Avenue and Baker Street just after 10 p.m. Saturday, however the driver refused to stop and led police on a chase.
Officers used spike strips to slow down the Ford truck which eventually came to a stop at around 10:30 p.m. in a neighborhood near Castlepoint Street and Rockford Avenue.
The subjects inside the pickup were apprehended. Their names have not been released.
