Woman jailed after police chase

Police jailed a woman on suspicion of auto theft and evading Saturday after she allegedly led police on a chase from Monterey Park to Alhambra in a stolen car, officials said.
The incident began shortly before 10 p.m. when an officer tried to pull the woman over for a traffic violation at Hellman and Orange avenues, Monterey Park police Sgt. John Martindale said.
She refused to pull over and led officers on chase down the 10 Freeway before ultimately surrendering at Orange Grove Avenue and Ramona Road in Alhambra, the sergeant said. She was arrested without further incident.
Just before the woman pulled over, he said, she slowed down and a person described only as male got out of the car and fled on foot. He was not found.
The woman’s name was not available Sunday afternoon, Martindale said.
